I cannot put into words
how diabolical this task is – I simply can't hack it!
This morning I burst out crying
as I was wracking my brains trying to focus
and think of a form for this particular sponsor
now I’m going out of my mind with worry
It’s so horrific -
trying to work with a sprinkling of consonants
and using strict phonics
with an aim of making a witty work for folk to follow.
So I’m truly sorry
if you think that this long composition
is just a load of old codswallop!
