Speedy Marie (Frank Black) Easter Egg - Frank Black's Romantic Poetry
In the sixth track, Mr. Black's sings "I sing this romaunt". A romaunt is a romantic poem. And, sure enough, the song ends with a quite lovely, romantic poem directed to a woman. This last section is written and sung in the classic 14-line sonnet style, with a rhyme pattern of A-B-A-B, C-D-C-D, E-F-E-F, G-G. The lines are actually an acrostic; the first letter of each line spells out "JEAN MARIE WALSH," presumably the Speedy Marie of the title.
