Progress in Poetry: BI-LYRICAL VERSE
Goof is used here in a sense overlapping with goofball for a person whose behavior, silly and inept (or 'goofy'), is seen by others as scoff-worthy.
To date, the archives on the OEDILF site lists over 60 limerick entries that are spoofs on the classic Nantucket limericks. And, you might enjoy seeing some of Giorgio's contribution to that oeuvre, as collected in a post entitled 'Variant Verse: Spoofs on the Iconic Nantucket Limerick' HERE.
Conversion disorder presenting as aphonia (the state of not being able to speak) is an occasionally encountered disorder with a psychologic basis.
You might also want to check out a few other examples of this intriguing poetic format. Check the collection here on 'Numbers'. Moreover, the first verse of the 3-stanza brief saga 'Domestic Turkeys' is also written with a bi-lyrical rhyming scheme.
