The Old Godger Curse

Recommended Posts

Why do old codgers

Feel compelled to write poems

That force us to invoke

Words like Jeroboam.


Now that’s a large wine bottle

Or an Old Testament King,

But we don’t seem to care

Long as it makes our poem ring.


I must agree with Beddoe,

That old friend of mine,

That it simply is fun

To write stuff online.


The readers can’t see us

And we can’t hear 'em jeer,

So we can flood the ‘net

With stuff like this here.


As schoolboys we recoiled

At the thought of writing verse.

Now we can’t stop

It’s the old codger curse
