Max Scratchmann’s Farewell to the World of Humorous Poetry

The average publisher’s humour list is like tourists flying coach,
And lacks, perhaps, the subtlety of my more whimsical approach,
And while I fashion poems in the small hours of the night,
A thousand erstwhile humorists conjecture on the variants of shite.

And what with broad-stoke parodies of the latest children’s books,
I fear my humble poems will be left without a look,
So this poet takes his closing bow and exits from the stage,
For he very much regrets that he will never see the page.
