Isn't it ludicrous
all the words we don't use in this,
prodigious world of ours?
All the spoonerisms and other things
yet very few know their means.
Something as asinine as, The farts if fleas.
Originally meant to be, The cart of beans.
And you exclaim, 'What a mondegreen! '
But people just look at you funny.
Trying to class things up a bit
you say resplendent instead of lit
or feces instead of -
'But that's for losers! ' They interrupt.
Which makes you want to erupt.
Like a down-and-outter?
A dud? A deadbeat? A flop? ...
