Elegy Is A Five-Letter Word For Deception

Poets old.
Poets bold.
Poets carry a heavy load
When eulogizing.
Their fooligizing;
Writing words in liar mode

What is said,
‘Bout the dead,
Is pondered with foreboding
Saying Party Bore
Or Wall-Street Whore
Are truths too corroding

He was a guy
Nice as pie,
Poets grit their teeth and write.
But poets old
And poets bold
Rejoice he’s buried out of sight.
