The Erstwhile Norm

How often do you drink hot toddies hot?
Don't they cool down until they're barely warm
And then quite cold? Do you believe reform
Of the whole solar system is a thought
That should be followed through, or is it not?
Would reindeer fit in, in a co-ed dorm,
Or would they undermine the erstwhile norm
With their behaviour? Have I gone to pot?

What did they mean by buttering the sink?
What else could all this feckless maundering
Result in? Where have you been laundering
My white shirts, now a startling shade of pink?
Do we detest change? Who knows what to think
When other people's thoughts are wandering?
