    An Anagram Poem (for Tink)

    (drifting around Tinker's excellent archive I was inspired to try one of these, emphasise try) How to live cheap he thought So a single peach he bought It's worth a coin's throw I trow Thought he, an archaic wonk was he to know so old a word and show his hows and whys Yet a life's short and time flies.
