Thanks and a Hat Tip to William Stafford

Haters and Quakers
and scalloped potaters

and how about those
cheap electric razors?

Busses that don’t
run on time

and over use
of the internal rhyme,

insouciant words
that come too easy

couplets drifting
light and breezy,

they all add up
to horse-faced poems you need

so the good ones
won’t decide to leave.
