This is a story of a girl named Felina
who used to peacockize on social media
with selfies and live videos galore.
Losengers from everywhere,
commented and liked her,
she believed she was adored.
Then one fine day she professed an opinion
that made fumish men infuriated
so they started to teen her
Roukers trolled her, demeaned her
until she couldn’t bear it anymore.
How could she have been such a Sillytonian?
To think they adored her, respected her?
She was merry-go-sorry to de-activate her account
But for peace of the mind
It had to be done.
I wrote this for ‘Scribble It.’ at the Imaginary Garden for Real Toads. The idea was to use some words which weren’t in use anymore. It sounded like fun, so I gave it a go! Hop into the pond here.
Below are the ‘old world’ words I have used in this poem:
Peacockize: To behave like a peacock; esp. to pose or strut ostentatiously
Losenger: A false flatterer, a lying rascal, a deceiver
Fumish: Inclined to fume, hot-tempered, irascible, passionate; also characterized by or exhibiting anger or irascibility
Teen: To vex, irritate, annoy, anger, enrage/ To inflict suffering upon; to afflict, harass; to injure, harm
Rouker: A person who whipers or murmurs, who spreads tales or rumours
Sillytonian: A silly or gullible person, esp. one considered as belonging to a notional sect of such people
Merry-go-sorry: A mixture of joy and sorrow
