Malapropisms - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Malapropisms are wordy misuse
Totally fraught with wordy abuse
Linguistically, wordy erroneous
Nomenclature-ly wordy felonious

You malaprop felons, abusers of speech
Lovers of language, should you impeach
You stand here accused of word instability
We convict you of malapropos culpability

So whether you write in prose or in rhyme
We’ll strive for punishment that fits your write crime
We’ll remove your thesaurus, dictionary too
All writing for you will be strictly taboo
