Friday Flash 55ve Fiction : A Satire on Disclaimers

DISCLAIMER: This is NOT about G-man and the resemblance in the following doggerel to any person living and not dead is purely coincidental...


A sagacious gentleman named Mr.Knowitall
Went atop a hill and had a nasty fall
Slipped his foot and headlong fell
Bushes and thorns tearing his apparel
Till Mr. Knowitall became Mr. Showitall.

Very sincere disclaimer Monique..
Loved your 55....No matter WHO it was about!

Mona said...

That is the whole point G. The Satire is on the Disclaimer, The way ppl say just anything about anybody, after a disclaimer, and get away with it . I wrote the 55ve after having watched a TV programme that maligns ppl after putting disclaimers before the show!

The 55ve is a SATIRE on Disclaimers,

Very cool poem, Monita!

Wonderful!
The disclaimers I know the best is the one I find on my cigarette packages: "Smoking kills" and similar... Cigarettes are sold anyhow!
