When I claimed to be sanguine 'bout the loss
Of NASA's poll to that - I won't say twit,
As that has connotations, and a gloss
Of coolness that do not apply to him -
Let's say "showboat," Colbert. I'm a bit mad,
But just a bit. My own prospects are dim
Of having my own cult like that. For shame,
I'm jealous, and I've lied in sonnet form!
My nose is too long and it's growing now;
My temper is too short. So I perform
A sonnet mea culpa (on a dare).
O Ommus, really, you had not a prayer.
