A Perm

Long ago,
in the land
of Bangchang-Chewie,
lived a lad named Earl
What a pearl
was our Earl
He had no girl,
only a goat
That's all she wrote

Earl and his goat

How does the title "perm" apply. Did the goat have curly hair?

"Perm" is how one who might live in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans would pronounce "poem." "Oil" is pronounced "Earl." Not totally unlike a Brooklyn accent.
