An eventful poem

Forecast calls for “rain event” —

Trendy term we can’t prevent.

Carried thus to full extent:

Shattered glass? A pane event.

Coronation? Reign event.

Airport gate? A plane event.

Abel felt a Cain event.

Huck or Tom? A Twain event.

“Stagecoach” was a Wayne event.

“Common Sense”? A Paine event.

“Hamlet”? Just a Dane event.

All of which is precedent.

Wordplay? Just a vain attempt

...Now you know whose mind is bent.
