A poet tried to be smart with his art
To satisfy his addiction to diction
But lost meaning to rhyme-scheming
He churned out empty lines
Which went into a comma and died before a full stop
But the fool wouldn’t stop
He scribbled passive cursive
Which was not at all impressive
And carried on cursing and cursing
