You Know or You NO!

That there have been some times
That my Really Awful Rhymes
Have raised an awful groan
Is truly quite well known
Well, this should come as no surprise
And I will not apologise,
For, from them, groans have been my aim;
And not weak laughs from joking tame.

I also make a point
With things found out of joint,
Such as to say all day
When thought has gone astray:
‘You know;’ well, if so, then why mention,
When, actually, your intention
To impart knowledge not in my possession,
And not extract a spurious confession?

Tonight on TV show
There was a man who’d go
‘You know’, until a brick,
Hurled at him very quick,
Is something that I longed to do,
Or pour hot oil into his shoe
To bring to a halt any resumption
Of any such fatuous assumption.
