Accepting the Doggerel Challenge

A comment on a previous post wondered if I could write poetry even worse than that of James McIntyre. The answer is - "of course" - though not necessarily for long stretches at a time. But just off the top of my head, here is the

Weather Report for the City of Fair Breezes
(lines composed while attending to Nature's call)

Oh here in downtown Buenos Aires,
The temperature it often varies,
Rain drizzles down like pee of fairies,
And washes downtown Buenos Aires.
Whether you are a Capricorn, or even an Aries,
You'll like it here in Buenos Aires.
Though the temperature it often varies,
And rain drops down like pee of fairies.

I could go on, but I think I've proved my point.
