I hear you–it is a good verb, and it does
adequately describe
your’n particular
style of running, Squirt. But

I shouldn’t think any serious writer
ought ever to use the word
frolic in a poem
about chasing deer-squirrels, innit.

Think about it.
Would you?

Besides, the Bald Man has a severe
lack of frolic right now. We
should respect that:
He is a man without any goddamned frolic.
