Quoted from an email originally sent to: The Thinker

The author writes:

Quite a tricky feat,
This paragraph not so neat,
A most painful rhyme,
And a scansion indiscreet,
Thus is had a dreadful time.

Poems criminal,
Writing oh so abysmal,
A tortorous prose,
Drawn from an eldritch hymnal,
Little comes smelling a rose.

My unwelcome gift,
Of intellectual thrift,
Questionable worth,
Thus forms a linguistic rift,
To bury deep under earth.
