- I Didn'T Write This Poem:: Humour

Rating: 2.7
I didn't write this poem, I did not choose these words
I'd never give my name to something so absolutely absurd
The idea of this poem is anathema to my senses
It should be locked away behind some very high fences

If I would write a poem, I'd pick a different theme
I'd write about a vivid and fascinating dream
A galloping steed upon which sat a handsome knight
Would be a poem subject on which I'd like to write

There are certain standards that I like to maintain
And many topics from which I choose to abstain
This poem is one from which I'd keep my distance
I cannot see a reason for its very existence

So if you read this poem, I can't believe you've got this far
Do not blame me if it leaves a sad and sorry scar
I tried to warn you that it's got nothing to do with me
It doesn't even come provided with a valid warranty
