wordspoem # 3

at a scrabble party the other night
we found that asshole isn’t in the
official dictionary my quarrel with
that scrabble authority has been
it omits the two-letter solfege
syllables except those popularized
by sound of music no di ri fi si li
but now we can’t use the f word
the c word or any other word
currently bleeped by the radio
(yes dr johnson we did look them
up) interestingly it includes bitch
not as a female dog but to complain
and gives a number of variations
so we all indulged in a bitchery
about the bitchy scrabble dictionary
