  • Feel free, write your scathing indictment
    Pick us apart with your joke of a pen
    Pacified poet, standing alone you know it
    I hear you preaching:
    "Do it again - won't you please do it again?"

    Plenty of time - hear the hypocrites whine
    Pathetic business -
    take it, test it, know it, burn it
    It's all a game you play so mealy mouthed
    at the trough we lay
    I hear you pleading:
    "Do it again - won't you please do it again?"

    Take it all upon you now
    Make you mark somehow
    and keep it going
    With illusions that you're real
    and phrases that you'll steall
    At your best you'll drag them down

    I've heard it all before
    it's all been said before
    extending all an invitation - welcome to the

    Critic's Carnival -
    Where writers think they know more than you
    No, don't be a fool at Critic's Carnival

    A bully pulpit built to spin a phrase
    will "pitch" a sermon for you
    if you've got the money to pay at the
    Critic's Carnival
    buy fifty dollar words, try bull-shit

    No, don't be deceived at Critic's Carnival...

    Invite us to your ivory tower
    Impress me with your
    insightfull gift of genius
    Yes, you can dish it out
    A coward too much clout
    Hungry for power -

    Do it again - won't you please do it again?
    Monday morning's last draft quarterback
    Get it right get it wrong
    We've just dragged on too long
    It's all a game you play
    so mealy mouthed at the through we lay
    I know you hear me!
    Do it again won't you please do it again?

    Well?
