Blarneyfacturing in Empat Empat form.
The babbling troupe of scriptophrenic twits
seek refuge in a poetorium
so they can stretch their scatterbrained word blitz
in the heat of scribblers’ delirium.

Prolific producers of gibberish,
the babbling troupe of scriptophrenic twits
strive to gratify their most fervent wish
by composing grandiose counterfeits.

Gathering lots of nonsensical bits
to ape a pretentious Pindaric group,
the babbling troupe of scriptophrenic twits
ponder Dairy Queen swirls of poodle poop.

They spew the stream of arroquent rubbish
until the flame of inspiration quits,
and flatulent editors can publish
the babbling troupe of scriptophrenic twits.
