Whying My Hereness

A quorum of gobble
A whiffle of gab
A dodder of fatuous
Hobbledy-hab
One frabjous tumescent,
ANd a spindly spy
Convened on the forum
Where mongrel-flies try
To winkle the wily
And fumble the few
And slum with the slyly
Effulgent, and you.

I frown on the woffle
And disdain the gabble
And scorn every fatuous
Hobbledy-habble.
I ignore the tumescent
And the spindly, also
And the mongrel-flies I
Will pretend not to know.
And the wily I willingly
Shun by the shins
And fracture the slyly
effulgent within.
I won't winkle wily ones
Nor fragment the few,
But I always delight
When you come into view.
