The oiled noddle

I maintain my mental hinges
with the oil of the Cajuput tree,
a powerful sudorific
that enhances joie de vivre.

So keep some in your knapsack,
for when your hinges squeak:
you too can have a noddle
as nimble as a sheep.

I do higher mathematics
and the crossword in The Times,
as well as writing poems
with really cheesy rhymes.

Cajuput tree, oh Cajuput tree!
give up your unctuous gunge,
to oil the creaking hinges
of my crazy mental sponge.
