Confidential-Keep Out


Did you dare a tiny peep at this poem?
Now that you're reading, I see you did!
Which is exactly why I must shoo you out-
Go ahead, do as you're bid!

Are you still reading this wretched poem?
Did I not tell you to go away?
Now scram for good, and don't come back!
Don't ask, just do what I say!

Why do your eyes continue downward?
Do you have a case of dyslexia?
But wait, you wouldn't know it's about-
Hurray, hallelujah!

But just in case you really aren't
My nerves are really on end
Do I have to show you to the door?
For your mother I will soon send!

Alas, now you're at the bottom
Of this eternally-cured write.
You will soon grow the Poet's Wart-
But don't tell anybody of your blight!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
