A Bone of Contention

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It really wasn’t my intention
To cause all this silly tension
When I received a suspension
From a booking for dissension
Because I simply chose to mention
My complete misapprehension
Of the ref’s poor comprehension
Which I brought to his attention

Notes

Why bother to comment or argue? The ref’s decision is final. Isn’t it?

Editor Note: Or is it?
Brilliantly put with excellent rhyming structure and work E….but….

Your latest ode has wit and shows invention
And clearly outlines battles with convention.
Upon some other site you’d risk detention
For causing purist readers hypertension.
We have no editorial prevention
And do not wish to stoop to condescension
But giving your new poem our recension*
I’m very glad I’ve fin’lly earned my pension
