The Jingle

By Linda Kunhardt Linda Kunhardt Read the Q & A
Polyester is raised up on column 4
             then joined or depressed on joint 3

                          on Saturday Albert
                          reduced wigmakers
                          to minuscule wages
                          with his merry song

             which is glued to aluminum arm 2
             then slides into elevated leg post 1.
