A Cross Tic

 

Froth upon your lips: your banter,                             

Usually a bagatelle,                                                               

Charmless – it’s a childish rant, a                                                                 

Kiddie tantrum, nasty smell.                                                             

 

Oh your words are thick as swill:                                          

Filled with idle nonsense, showy,                                          

Filled with taunts, a parrot trilling,                                       

Yakking, useless. Time to go.                                    

 

Oh you’re thick, your speech hysteric, a                                           

Uniformly tasteless stew:                                          

Tongue out at the real America                                            

Otiose and claptrap, hooey,                                      

 

Selfish, never apropos                                               

Specious like a brain-dead Bono:                                          

Empty-hearted braggart. So                          

Rumble off, you mastodon!
