I read in the paper a poem,
Whose author nameless shall bee…
Pretended writing ’bout politics
With made-up vocabulary.
They must have thought him the cat’s meow,
Or they were desperate for copy…
His overuse of modified words
Made the whole thing very sloppy!
His point at the end was doubtless
An innocent plea for peace…
Rough and tumble of political debate
He suggested it ALL CEASE!
For a happy little peaceful world
With no more democracy…
Just a dictator to tell us all
Who or what will be!
(This particular “poet” was writing in one of the weekly local rags in this Poet’s area of residence. The guy had absolutely no skill with the English language, although by sheer complicated verbiage he sure tried to impress SOMEBODY! Wouldn’t have impressed my 10th grade English teacher…I know, ’cause I tried it!)
