Nick Tselepides
 1
 
 
Precision tailor of words;
 2
one pair a whole suit
 3
of salient surges;
 4
of warm blooding serges;
 5
brocades nature made.
 6
Nick Tselepides,
 7
Greek tailor,
 8
modern day
 9
 
 
His forebears had names
 10
like Euripides;
 11
Nick Tselepides,
 12
a mindwright
 13
 
 
Eumenides?
 14
Nick Tselepides!
 15
He does that!
 16
He makes time worn new
 17
 
 
To my mentor and friend,
 18
to the artisan, here,
 19
to reshear my fabric
 20
I hand you a scissors.
 21
Euripides?
 22
Oh, not to Fury me.
 23
But if it be that,
 24
they should bury me
 25
near to thee
 26
Nikos Tselepides

He's all Greek. I come from a very different background, having a Quaker-rooted journalist/novelist  in -my- lineage (drew pearson)

and yes! this is a serio-comic personal verse.  
=you are supposed to laugh= at me.  For Nick is anti-rhyme and anti-contrived poetry.  Soooo I did both on him.  What a guy!

PS: did you know that old tailor joke?
heh; you do -now-
