Scoffy Snobs – Poem

Scoffy Snobs


They come in all shapes and size

This one did come as a surprise

You can usually tell a snob when they open their gob

And nothing but shit there resides


This one was set up quite cute

Lulled was I; like a magical flute

I looked at the page, was overcome with rage

And revenge plans ensued


The offense is difficult to say

It’s not one you come across every day

Perhaps I should take criticism on board

But it’s so easily ignored when I know it

Just grinds you away


The lesson I teach today:

Do not let academic snobs get in your way

A written poem they say, should not rhyme

Just another working class crime.
