Doggerel Bank

Written by: denis bruce

To dwell  in the realm of Doggerel Bank
Shows the writer up as  a crank.
Should anyone my poems  stoop  to chronicle,
I would surely be ranked with Willie McGonagall.

Whether I rise with lark or cockerel
My poems sink to the depths of Doggerel
If nocturnal like bat or owl
My verse stinks of murder most foul.

With  reason then will I  abjure rhyme
Writing bad verse is worse than a crime
No more will I a poetaster be
And so  I set my readers free..

So fair fortune to those who versify well
Adieu to my readers , my final farewell.
