From Fancyclopedia 1, ca. 1944
(Kuslan) - Jingles which state something simply true or obviously untrue, and outrage and amuse by the unpoeticness of the sense and the openness with which they strain for rime. Take fr example this little dillie from Beling's fanzine Fan-Atic, by Archer cusp (whoever he is):
"Temptations press me round about 
And find me feek and weeble; 
I read my valued eyesight out 
On mags of Kwazy Peeble."

See Poetry, Widowers, Little Willy Verses.
