Ode to Ex #3
You were no Gautama Buddha;
turns out, you were a barracuda!
Or a rat, old hat, who scat with a blat,
up the creek, with a squeak — imagine that!
Just an ender, an offender, a greedy over-spender —
your destructive feud, was horribly rude,
and my tongue has been in-cheek
during this opera comique, you pipsqueak!
But your latest is your “greatest,” so now I exclude
your ineptitude, dude! Myself, I won’t delude.
You’re unproductive, so you go splat!
I’m not destructive, but thoroughly instructive!
You can’t handle my words?
I know, you prefer turds.
Have a nice life;
thank god I’m not your wife.
