I ought to write a sonnet,oh goddamit.
The future’s fiction,and Ted Hughes has spun it
A sonnet quite informal for the planet
I ought to write one but I need a permit.
If I’d like to write a sonnet ,I will plan it
As Mary Queen of Scots embroidered rabbits.
The sonnet is much too strong a habit.
Get the Book or I shall steal or grab it.
So I want to write a minute yet perfect sonnet
If there’s a prize so far I ‘ve rarely won it
Ask Dante, was it Petrarch who just done it?
A sonnet is a sexist name.Goddamit
You think it’s really great to write Platonic?
If you saw my form , you’d learn I’m not a cynic
