Missing Letter Mondays – No “N”

Published February 29, 2016 by Iphis of Scyros

“A Paradox”
(Redux & Slightly Paraphrased…)

“A paradox?”

“A paradox!  A most” clever “paradox!
We’ve quips” plus “quibbles heard” as “flocks,
But” zero “to beat this paradox!”

“A paradox, a paradox, a most” clever “paradox,
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, this paradox!”

(Speech:  “Ooh, I love a good paradox!”)

“Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, the paradox.”

“For some ridiculous” purpose
To which, however, I’ve” zero”desire to be disloyal
Some” body with “authority”


“I” lack a clue “who,
Very likely the” Stargazer “Royal
Has decided that,
Although for such a beastly” time “as February,
28 days as a rule are” a plethora,
“1 year” of “every four,
His days shall be” calculated “as 9” plus “20
Through some” particular accord, perhaps
“If it were” caused by the acts “of” a “ill-“humored “fairy
You are the victim — ”


” — of this clumsy” schedule
First brought to life
Mid-“Leap Year”
At “the 29th  of February”
Thus “by a simple arithmetical process
You will easily discover
That though you’ve lived
21 years…”

(Speech: “Yes, that’s right…”)

“Yet, if we go by birthdays
You’re” but “five”
Plus “a little bit over.”

“Ha ha ha ha ha ha, ho ho ho ho”

“Dear me, let’s see…
Yes, yes,
With yours my figures do agree!
(Speech:  “Five” plus” a quarter, that’s rich!”)
“How” odd “the ways of paradox,
At” simple thought “she gaily mocks.
Though” estimated by “the usual way,
Years 21 I’ve” stood “alive,
Yet” calculated “by my” birth “day
Yet” calculated “by my” birth “day,
I am a little boy of five!”

“He is a little boy of five!”

“A paradox, a paradox,
A most” clever “paradox,
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha,
The paradox!”


Yes, less satisfactory…

Ah, just watch the video!  (From the delightful 1983 movie!)

Happy Leap Year, all!

Obviously, the vast majority of these words are those of (two specific) others.  I merely quote them.  (Plus remove a particular letter from the lyrics…)
