They said: “that bastard writes too many poems
and floods my news-feed, causing me to miss
the updates of mom’s doings back at home,
the cat vids I so love, and all the piss
and vinegar of low-life politics
conveniently reduced to simple signs
which tell me how the whole damn country ticks.
No facts, please! Just a couple cutesy rhymes!”
Well, this short order cook stirs up a mess
of greens and turnips, squash and beans and ‘shrooms
I don’t expect too many to digest,
accustomed to the standard drive-thru dooms.
So go ahead and block my crap, that’s fine.
We’ve all the same right – choosing where to dine!
