A Poem For Those Who Like To Waffle

September 9, 2010

The Long and Short of it

Ned always speaks extemporaneously
And few would doubt his eloquence
But in ad captandum argument
His words lack fruitful resonance.
He’s good at stirring up a mob
And receiving adulation,
Although with facts fallacious
He discombobulates the issues —
In words of simple syllables
Contradicting the empirical.
Perfidious I will seem to be
In a megalomania’s Utopia,
For I audaciously reveal the truth
Of Ned’s impediment to glorious fame —
His Hippopotomonstresquippedaliophobia
