Hic Cups

essentially. an inexplicbl onset of the hiccups frequently lasts for quite some moderate length of time.
as my mind in a heightened state of literary permicuosnss, the whim arose to craft a poetic epistle with rhyme.

I write much hic cup ado
   About nothing, which involuntary explosive release
   comes clear out of the hic cup blue
nary a sponge bob square pants handy dandy bellows clue
   where in tarnation this uncontrollable bout
   jarring the body electric hic cup do
   why such physiological spasmodic trembling whacky
   baa closure of glottis hic cup ewe
moost likely find annoying as this hic cup ping buck feels few
breaths short of taking drastic action
   like hic cup swallowing glue
as an extreme solution per tha series
   of being held hostage hoo
   dee knee probably lacked escapist artist skills
   even if he trundled to an igloo
   to emergency room of a hospital or veterinarian
   such hic cup caterwauling catering to gentile cat or Jew
   lean, thus, time and again when said hic cup affliction
   holds me hic cup ransom knew
   does drive me towards acts of desperation
   such as sticking ma head in the loo
   which bizarre blitz krieg reaction on par with holding
    out an appetite until famished for moo
Goo guy pan in mixed with a delicious bowl of new
dulls steeped in broth or an island delicacy renown on Oahu
even this atheist would ask for salivation praying a pew
whereby sound of silence echoed by hic cup right on queue
when nary a burble until reach that amen hic cup rue
stubbornly persists, no matter trying to suppression sue
per upsurge of diaphragm, a diabolical force forcing air thru
nasal passage and/or mouth oft times faintly resembling a u
ca  lay lee with a snort accompanied no doubt by a voodoo
Practitioner…until…at last whew
hic cups stop as mysteriously as they started
   bringing relief to this caged primate in a zoo.
