"Let's see, how can we adapt OKOM to poetry? Maybe with poems like the
 Midnight Ride of Paul Revere? Suggestions?"

It has already been done in Vo-Do-Do-De-O Blues (I have a great piano roll
of this little stomper) :

Paul Revere on his midnight ride,
Turned around on his horse and cried,

I just love the words of the bridge :

His ukulele, daily, he would strum,
Vum vum vum
(I forget the next line),
Then he'd holler "Black Bottom".

They don't write 'em like that any more.
