Vero Verse Cockamamie

“Cockamamie,” my aunt’s rallying cry

She used it to amplify

When someone to her was full of shit
No other words explicitly transmit
In all things she was the judge and jury
When opinions were doubted, she unleashed her fury
To emphasize and communicate her dictum
“That’s cockamamie!” was shouted at her victim
An arbiter of fashion and decorum
Even though her views had no quorum
But what she loathed in others, I’m here to tell
My cockamamie aunt was guilty of it as well
