Poppycock

Poppycock
.

.
Out cruisin’ the hood in my thing-a-gig

Backseat full of ragamuffins cryin’

One rapscallion spotted a whirligig,

And their caterwauling got me fryin’.

.
The smallest tyke was catawampus.

The whole scene was discombobulated.

The shenanigans were causing a rumpus.

Tryin’ to mollycoddle, I was deflated.

.
So I turned my jalopy widdershins,

But traffic was such a hodge-podge

A crash with a Jitney had me doin’ spins

With such folderol, I had to get outa Dodge.

.
The bus was loaded with old curmudgeons

Who raised a hullabaloo that had me flabbergasted.

The hoi-polloi was snooty, as raucous as pigeons,

I prayed for some peace, but the claptrap lasted.

.
One scallywag was persnickety about the kerfuffle,

He caused such brouhaha, he started a slobberknocker.

Well, one pantywaste got pasted in the muffle.

The sidekick in cahoots got knocked off his rocker.

.
A pettifogger came around spouting his razzmatazz.

I was not about to be bamboozled by his skullduggery.

Thumped him with a bumbershoot with much pizzazz.

That ended the rigmarole, but he needed surgery.

.
A bodybus with a sawbones arrived on the scene.

He used a spygmomometer to check the heart,

Plastered some gewgaws and gobblygook on his bean.

That relieved the collywobbles on my part.

.
If you thought this battychatter didn’t rock

Then you can just ignore this poppycock.

.
