Coax the words out from the pen
Slap and shake them out again
Splurging, surging, oozing out
Patterns form, some rhyme, some shout
Sometimes short, sometimes longer
Mostly nonsense – zumpinequanger!
Smothering all that’s on the plate
A verbal ketchup to placate
And mask the truth (that bitter pill)
With a poisonously addictive tale
by a sugar-coated quill.
