Jargon Jabberer


We call ourselves Jack-of-all-trades,

While poker hands come up all spades.

This writing job we encounter jerks,

And rarely enjoy a rich man’s perks.

Journalism is our skill of trade

Unfortunately never well paid

Taking words and juxtapose

Into rhyming jargonizing prose.

Some of us are known as a Jesus freak

Till we learn how to teach while being meek

Journeying through this annual dare

Justifying to ourselves why people stare

John Barleycorn was an interesting fellow

In Maine some people speak in joual.

I’ve jabbered on quite long enough,

Joie de Vivre and always stay tough.

The Challenge
