lame insults

         they're yelling again
         trying to draw me into it
         but these pathetic insult poems
         lack in skill with metaphor
         images, or even grammar...
         it's like a toothless dog
         trying to gum you to death:
         you just keep shaking your ankle
         but you feel sorry for
         the crippled thing, and so
         you don't kick it
         you just hope it will
         eventually wander off
         and bother someone else
