The side view word dished out to me, ‘Preposterous’,

Is really that, in ultimate extreme!

All rhymes for that, you will agree, be lost fer us –

There is no rhyme for it, as it would seem;

another day has thought, here, to see cost fer us,

In putting forth a word that will not rhyme,

And that is why the word must now be tossed ter us,

To give me quite a miserable time!

It’s ‘utterly absurd’, like a rhinosterous,

And ‘contrary to nature’ also means;

While ‘reason’, ‘common sense’, are also crossed per this:

Ridiculous direction that it leans!

The word so fits how ANC be prosperous,

With hot air and with money-grabbing schemes;

And rhetoric so empty we see glossed ter us –

Preposterous, and just the stuff of dreams!

  1. I do like ‘rhinosterous. ” Puts me in mind of Dr Doolittle.
