Double Dactyl in D Minor

Sharpakey-Flatakey!
Sergei Rachmaninoff,
Russian composer, what
Wonders he wrote!

Good thing he'd not abuse
Pianississimo;
Else he might not be a
Person of note.

or, alternatively...

Sharpakey-Flatakey!
Sergei Rachmaninoff,
Russian composer, a
Person of note. 

Some folks complain about
Pianississimo;
Suck it up, people; that's
Just how he wrote!

------------------------------------------------

The only problem with the second one is that I have no idea whether or not Rachmaninoff used a lot of pianississimo (damn, that's hard to type), and, if he did, whether or not many people objected to it.

The End
