If we say something really sucks,
The meaning’s very clear,
For that expression, once improper,
Now’s a common smear.
But saying something sucks can be,
And I’ve not been imbibing,
A compliment – if it’s a vacuum
That one is describing.
So next time you hear someone say,
“Oh man, that really sucks!”
Make sure a Hoover’s not around
Before releasing clucks.
