It’s April, which means it’s National Poetry Month, which means it’s National Pwoermd Writing Month. Thanks to Geof Huth (https://twitter.com/geofhuth) for creating this festival and inviting us all to join it. Some years I’ve written a pwoermd every day in April but my participation will probably be sporadic this year. I’ve gotten too wordy and prosaic to get properly into the spirit of things. Still, I feel that pwoermds deserve all the encouragement they can get. So here’s my contribution for April Fool’s Day. Poor liberty, poor despised thing.
