It infuriates me and froths my mouth
That pushy bull, “Ethel A-hole,” corralled me
Into her “pen” to write for her “pad” —
That is, her newsletter!
Then basically tried to whiplash me
In my own automobile, you see,
To further wrap the noose around my neck,
Then squeeze it —
She’s another hornet like Irit —
And I can’t take their shit!
Betsy-boots, who roota-toot-toots
Her own flutes and horn,
Is another controller like them —
Another old hen full of “corn.”
Let’s nip the wings of the “Royal B.’s,”
Clip them down to size.
And whoever succeeds at this
Should win first prize!

    1. Thanks Jessica, for taking the time to leave a comment. But I was surprised it was on this poem of all poems. For I thought it was probably too negative to post. However, at this point, I am just posting whatever I finally get edited as I go along in my poetry notebooks. I’ll have to go back and weed things out as time goes by, after I give more distance to what I’ve done, so I can judge from a better perspective.

      1. Yeah it is negative. I guess that spells progress like you are doing what you are doing getting things moving good or bad like your other poem sais.
        I’m just in a non writing silent mood barly keeping up with my daily post at the moment.
        I try to read all your stuff even if I don’t comment. Hugs

        1. Jessica, I appreciate your feedback. Sorry to hear you are not feeling at your best. Give me a call if you would like to talk. Meanwhile, I wish you all the best in your writing and the positive efforts to contribute to the world and creativity.

        2. PS: I forgot to say that your observations in your comments are so deep and wise, as always. I have hundreds of poems to edit, and wonder if I should skip through and try to find the best ones, rather than take each poem as I run into it.

          Time doesn’t really allow for me to edit and publish all my poems, I suspect. I also suspect I should only post my best ones, if only because many people will only read one to three of my posts. If they read the ones that I know are not my best, then that’s all they will know of my writing and me. But that’s how it goes.
