My latest foray into mass-production poetry got me a miserable infraction from a humourless mod on another forum.

That new mod
Is a sod
He gave me an infraction
That's not to my satisfaction.


All for posting this cheerful little number:

ID sockpuppets
Post science like muppets
There's always a smidgen
Of religion.


Which of course was aimed at:

TelePhrone
Is a knucklebone
He thinks Jesus
Controls us by telekinesis.


who is known here as:

Mechanist
Gives science a new twist
He thinks we were created by a poltergeist
Named Christ.



[ For those who might be interested, the verse form is a clerihew - a comic verse in two rhyming couplets with lines of unequal length that refers to a person ( often someone famous ). ]

 ;D ;D
Never draw fire - it irritates everyone around you.

Ei incumbit probatio, qui dicit, non qui negat; cum per rerum naturam factum negantis probatio nulla sit

"Sensitive" people are now carefully examining the entire universe, trying to find something to be "offended" at. It won't stop until such time as the "offenders" learn to stop apologizing, and saying "freck off" instead. — brianvds, The ShoutBox Classics, 02/07/2018.

Time for another Clerihew.

Barack Obama
Killed Osama.
Many Muslims were sad;
Ain't that just too bad.
