For something to make anyone smile, from The Trouble with Poetry.
from The Introduction / by Billy Collins
Wagga Wagga is in New South Wales.
Rhyolite is that soft volcanic rock.
Yes, meranti is a type of timber, in tropical Asia I think,
and Rahway is just Rahway, New Jersey.
The rest of the poem should be clear.
I’ll just read it and let it speak for itself.
