Chapter 70 of the book People
a story poem
"Meltin' Milton" by Bill Schott

Meltin' Milton, Magic Man
had a sideshow that he ran
with a partner, Dodo Dan,
over near the park.

Friday nights just after six,
Milton pulled his bag of tricks
and entertained the local hicks
until it was past dark.

The magic man would stand up straight,
then flow into a liquid state
and have his partner then inflate
a life-size, great white shark.

Dodo Dan would get a hose
syphon Milton through his nose
as the crowd moaned 'Ooos' and 'Ohs'
at this scene so stark.

Dodo Dan, the bloated goon,
would vomit on the shark balloon
and in the shadow of the moon
the sight of Milt's hallmark.

After this tremendous act,
Meltin' Milton stood intact;
you think it's fiction, but it's fact,
a Friday evening lark.
