Lawd Moncktn


So righteous is my denial
no daylight or reason can sway
and no attempt to corrupt via semen
will end
in a wet end,
since I won't even start to get hard where it counts,
because hardness is confined to my brain
and you can tell a hard brain that it's mad,
tell it again and again and again.

    Gosh, if only Labour had listened to Lawd Moncktn instead of the consensus of the IPCC, then our esteemed PM wouldn't now be calling on them to 'repent'. (Report) Reply
