A fat frog in a blender --
Not an image art should render
Even if you have been on a three-week bender.
It's sure to make someone puke.

A cook who's being petty
Will put pigs' feet on spaghetti
And instead of apple, make Broccoli Brown Betty,
Daring diners to rebuke.

You should not sew a ruffle
On a khaki Army duffle
It will make soldiers weep and stomp off in a huffle,
And the nation then would fall.

But if you are going to write
And bring creative words to light
Just pound out those flagrant phrases, pound with all your might.
You're an author, after all.
