Satirical verse

/ a dictionary definition

 

Satirical verse;

say one thing,

mean another.

 

Pretend to please;

but mean

to bother.

 

Itís an oxy moron;

A contradiction

in terms.

 

A flippant statement;

With a somber

Concern.

 

Itís the writer playing the clown;

with a solemn

frown.

 

Expressing a hope;

While cracking a

Joke.

 

Itís like saying something serious;

While being

delirious.

 

Satirical verse;

A writers secret pretense,

played out upon the reader.
