Carefully avoiding the word "cupid" does not pay the bills.

I'm a clever, yet poor fellow who, pid-
dly, earns less than old chums with their group id
My poet's heart says, "Your
cold money's no measure,"
But dammit, they're rich and yet stupid

An Awful, Ahistorical Account

Born Benjamin, bright Boston's bulky boy
Commandingly came courting countries' change
Did destiny decline? Did death destroy?
Ethereal, eschewed 'e Earth's exchange

For further — fifty fathoms — Franklin flew
Gargantuan, gouged George (God's glorified)
He hurdled Heaven's high hullaballoo
'is independence it inspired inside

Jejune, Judge John Jay jeer├Ęd joyfully
Kept kinship kindled, killed King's knowing knights
Less lethal letters lashed lads' loyalty
More minions marched, made Massachusetts' might

(Need narrative net nuance? Nail named's node:
Of oozing offal, or odiferous ode?)

Must be the fumes.

We lounge in the steel mining pits erg-
onomincally while we eat grits.  Erg-
otism is common: we
've mold in our hominy!
That's how corn grows around Pittsburgh.

On ice.

Wayne Gretzky, who's nicknamed "The Greatest"
Had nary a clue I'm a sadist
So with dark schadenfreude
I laughed, and destroyed a
Rare Stanley Cup won by that skatist

Poedo or poedo not; there is no poetry.

Bad poems? It's true that I write 'em
So christ'ning a blog to highlight 'em
Where rhymes were the cruelest
Was on my to-do list
But now I can check off that item
