I have read a rondeau or rondel by Marzials in the Athenaeum beginning and ending "When I see you": it was very graceful and shewing an art and finish rare in English verse. This makes me the more astonished about Flop flop.
I'm a worthless check, a total wreck, a flop But if baby I'm the bottom, you're the top.Cole Porter
Yes, always keep the Classics at hand to prevent flop.(Adeline) Virginia ne e Stephen Woolf
Yes, it is true that King David was a flop, but I’d do it all over again, because it gave me the opportunity to discover a remarkable city, Matera, which I would never have otherwise got to know.
