Rough around the edges
Round rhymes for square wedges
Hidden from view behind thick hedges
Produced as memory dredges
Double-crossed by disloyal pledges
Innocent of anything anyone alleges
Stays unfazed if hit with sledges
Hope it hangs from highest ledges
Like streamlined arrows given fledges
That's enough — close up your ledgers!
Imagination rarely stretches
What a poor price knowing fetches
Even learning barely etches
Credible and discernible sketches.
