Cueball: Insult Poem for SunWinks! Sunday Gather Writing Essential

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on July 22, 2013 0 Comments



(To be sung to the tune of “Stewball”)


Ol’ Pitbull is a cueball,

And I wish he’d shut up!

That’s a pretty lame rap name

For a bald honky pup!

He’s a hip-thrusting prancer

Who can’t even sing;

I guess they call that “air voice”

Must be the latest thing.

With Christine Aguilera

And A-Ha on the floor,

He rips off “Take On Me.”

What do they need him for?

Why does he get to lip-sync

At this year’s All Star Game,

When I’m still not discovered?

It’s a crying damn shame!

That cueball, Mister Pitbull!

It’s a warped industry

That puts him on the big stage

While I watch on T.V.!
