Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

Record Breaker

image source
When I was a kid, I often would look
Through the pages of the Guinness World Record Book.
I thought that some day I would break one myself
And see my own name in that book on a shelf.
My plans about how to become such a winner
Were always forgotten when Mom called for dinner!

What's the record for most phlegm kept in a jar? It seems like that one would be attainable with little effort.
