Couplet Liability Insurance

Has there been an outbreak of rhyming?
Is the reader playing loose with his timing?
Does the smirk on his face
Take the good from your grace?
Well it is obvious at first glance
You need Couplet Liability Insurance.

Is the libre jemmied into the verse?
Or the line length seem ever so terse?
Is the metaphor mangled
Through obfuscation tangled?
Do you drift into a trance?
You need Couplet Liability Insurance.

Did he really just mention a 'stanza'?
Do you wish TV still showed Bonanza?
Do you wish that this dreamer
Would just meet his redeemer?
I think there's a good chance
You need Couplet Liability Insurance.

Couplet Liability Insurance is available at affordable rates to all good poetry societies.
