Entertaining A Fool

When someone seeks to fool you
Sedulously striving so as to rule you

Thus professing so sincere
Even to make tear drops appear
Tis so fortunate he is near

To assuage a troubled soul of fear

Which is you in dire distress
That he may comfort and caress

Fabricating mysterious machinations
Boasting exaggerated proclamations
Expressing exhilarating fascinations

All with bluster and aplomb
His magic flatulence goes on and on

Professing devotion to this or that
An allegiance or two-so lightly sprinkled in

Who seeks to be but devoted friend

Add just a pinch of abhorrence and disdain
For those bad-bad people he cannot explain

Let him continue on and on
Til all his bloated wind is gone
He will never have to know
How he entertains and amuses so!
