Modern society; oh, what notoriety!
A dress one can see through; they make sure we do, do, do
I wonder what I can say writing my poetry
Some folks are models of total sobriety
From the top of the head to the well-heeled big toe too
Modern society creates much notoriety
I wanted to practise medicine and psychiatry
But my unconscious mind caught that terrible swine flu
I wonder what one can achieve by learning poetry?
I studied the foot and learned much “podiatry”
How to cut corns off or stick them back: superglue
Modern society maims with notoriety
Perhaps life’s real answers will prove to be dietary
Stop all this writing and run to the Super Zoo
What I can achieve just making this poetry?
When you phone me up you say “is that you, Lou”
I’ll say I felt bitter but now I’m just” Boo Hoo”!
Modern society creates notoriety
I wonder where I can live with my poetry
