for shouting at the news


(take a deep breath)



that’s bosh and balderdash,

all flummery and lip-wisdom,

claptrapping poppycock

it’s whiffy-whaffy codswallop,

your cankerous stutiloquence

and skimble-skamble bunk

aargh, bilgewater pifflery,

and bafflegabbing folderol,

this fandangling cant!


(and breathe)
