Mas Doggerel!

A bunch of you thought my comment about getting hired by the local paper to write satirical doggerel was a joke. That's understandable. But it wasn't. Here's the link.

Your satirical doggerel is truly awful. It lacks wit, orginality, and even though it is end-rhymed it completely lacks rhythm. Quite an accomplishment, that.

These four lines are particulary bad:

For he, like George Bush, did sit on his tush,

When duty called in their youth

To fight for their country in Vietnam.

Yes, boot camp was just too uncouth.

Clunky, clunky, clunky!

How about some agreement between "he" and "their". It should be "in his youth". Man, that's just basic grammar.

Your poem truly sucks! I can't believe how bad it is. You must have a wooden ear, and it's not funny at all. You probably won't post this comment. I get the impression you can dish out the snark, but can't take it. Your poem is even worse than Sange's Urn crap!

No arguments here. But perhaps you aren't familiar with the word "doggerel." I'm pretty sure that noun/pronoun agreement isn't a part of the criteria for success.
