Pathetic Poems parody of Wondrous poems

Pathetic poems are parodies Chopped and severed from mad trees Which escape from limb and trunk Then appear in books as junk Transplanted in the minds they've fried Transplanted till their poets have died Echo in "ruinic" rhyme That degrade through passing time Written down as so much clutter They find their way into the gutter How hilarious these poems can be Poems also known as parody ruinic - a fictitious word derived from runic as obscure and ruin as degraded - a degraded and obscure rhyme

Down with iambic pentameter unless it Shelley be. I tend to agree, but heh, without Haydn there might not have been a Beethoven. Enjoyed. Congrats on the selection. daver
