The Knaves Confound't by Poetry - An Ode to Elite:Odyssey

Thou imbecile! Your dialect is skewed!
When my fair tongue recites these wondrous lines
The rhyme scheme is not forced, nor stretched to fit
I know not what your wretched ear divines.

If I speak the words aloud, 'sure' and 'bore' would also rhyme with 'raw' and 'Tor'. This might just be an accent thing.
Aye, indeed, 'tis an accent thing.
As to thy fair toungue, methinks it must be rheumatoid
While we share a language, we are at odds
Primarily because I wish not to make love with Thargoids.

I thought some of the metaphysical imagery was particularly effective. Interesting rhythmic devices, too, which seemed to counterpoint the surrealism of the underlying metaphor of the humanity... oops sorry, Thargoidity of the poets compassionate soul which contrived through the medium of verse structure to sublimate this, transcend that and come to terms with the fundamental dichotomies of the other. And one is left with a profound insight into whatever it was that the poem was about.
 
Someone came in sayin' I'm insane to complain
About a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
Don't believe everything that you breathe
You get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
So shave your face with some mace in the dark
Savin' all your food stamps and burnin' down the trailer park
 
To celebrate the semi-atmospheric planets of Odyssey, I'd like to quote a famous 20th Century bard:

"Oh what an atmosphere
I love a party planet with a happy partial atmosphere,
Music everywhere,
And soon we'll be dancin' in the cool night air,
Now we're out here all together,
Everybody's hand in hand,
We can make it last forever...."
