The Battle Of Pompous Prigs - Poem by Judith Driscoll Bryan

..
A mere Mortal am I, not infallible as I seem.
I credit my endurance to my own self esteem.
The error igniting such grievous fuss
Was his mispronunciation of Co-per'-ni-cus'

I claim innocence, not folly, in my endeavor,
To amicably help him to appear more clever.
A knowledgeable, self-appointed tutor, I be.
An instigator of calamity? ....No, not me!

Contempt, apparent, as superciliously, he...
Pointed a jeweled finger, directly at me.
And said ''You daft pundit of inane Yakity-Yak.
I dare you to elaborate on what else I lack! ''

Being a true gentleman, I couldn't ignore
This palatable invite. So, I offered him more
Advice on how to improve his articulation
And rid himself of such Cerebral Constipation.

(To be cont'd..........)

    superlatively written - sounds as if it could be part of a modern Greek tragedy with the humor & the lofty lanuage. (Report) Reply
