Muggle Meta-Puzzle Rhymes and Other Doggerel by Frank Mullen
Frank Mullen, Canadian by birth, Vermonter by chance, and Virginian by choice, is a “Muggle.” (XWord Muggles Forum - https://www.xword-muggles.com/index.php). That’s a crossword puzzle enthusiast contending weekly with other Muggles to solve internal meta-puzzles motivated by gaining a crossword mug for their victory. He posts, in doggerel, for the reading pleasure of other Muggles, his frequent failure and infrequent success. His choicest are in this book. In regards these he states…
No insights emerge here, no visions unfold,
No past is explained nor the future foretold.
They’re just entertainment, their meaning is plain,
These verses all speak for themselves, in the main.
The writing gave joy to the poet, who will,
If readers enjoy it, be happier still.
I leave you to reading, then. ‘Nuff of this talk!
I must take my doggerel out for a walk.
