Don't you hate it when people post obnoxious text at the top of their blog and you have to scroll past it every time you want to read what they've posted? Man, I really hate that.

I wrote a poem! (Oh no-em!)

I believe it highlights one of the greatest, most infuriating degradations to fester within our society at this time.

I call it

Ode to Cloudy Apple Juice

Begone! O cloudy apple juice!
Thine taste art most obscene!
I'd rather drink a foul mix
Of soap and kerosene!

Begone! O cloudy apple juice!
Most cursÚd on my lips!
I wouldst not sup such nectar vile
With eggs or ham or chips!

Begone! O cloudy apple juice!
You really aren't that nice!
(I wish more people would observe
This free and wise advice!)

Begone! O cloudy apple juice
So I couldst hope, next time
My mother shops, she wouldst purchase
The nice, non-cloudy kind.

My two regrets are trying to rhyme 'obscene' with 'kerosene', and not including enough exclamation marks.

One day I'll have to post a recording of me reading this.

My regrets are that it didn't have Star Orange

I enjoyed reading that. Very clever.

In my view, the first verse would flow better with:

Begone! O cloudy apple juice!
Thine taste art most obscene!
I'd rather drink the foulest mix
Of soap and kerosene!

Begone! O Enchilado for
You clearly have no taste
So leave this place at once or I
Will grind you to a paste!

My next great work will be designed to teach newbies to use the edit button.

Phylum, it works if you make 'foul' fill two syllables. And, for that matter, make 'purchase' rhyme with 'her mace'.Oration is fun.

I have since spoken the poem and realised that I erred.
