OCT 6, (re)duplication: helter-skelter

Authors' Note: This (re)duplication has elements of impulsiveness, thoughtlessness and randomness in common with harum-scarumpell-mell and hodge-podge.

 Readers willing to go down an internet rabbit-hole HERE can easily get to our other eight short verses dealing with specific reduplications, as well as three fairly lengthy patter-songs about this fascinating linguistic phenomenon.
