It's True - Poem by Margaret Gaffney

Poetry is amorous,
Slightly contaminous
Pretty preposterous
Editors freeze it,
White bearders wheeze it,
Teachers applaud it,
Pupils delaud it,
Critics acclaim it,
Readers defame it.
Poetry is irresistible,
Spiritually upliftable,
Wholly commendable,
Really remarkable,
