I’ve had the call to launch my mission
So started up an e-petition
Its object honest, pure, and good
To save us all, each neighbourhood,
From tortured metre, inept verse,
Fractured similes and worse
Prepared intending to deceive
Supporting stay; supporting leave
Garbled lines that just confuse
None inspired by any muse.
The safest course for all readers
Is to make it clear to leaders
Against such work we all do stand
Until the bloody lot is banned.
