Ode to the Magnificent Rascal

Thanks to Magnificent1Rascal for her poem 'Better Than You', which inspired me to write this.

Homage to a Rascal

Better than me I've no doubt you are,
Your humour and vision outstrip mine by far.

What is it I like in your startling style?
Anent we shall know, but after a whyle.

For a smart turn of phrase you do have the edge;
My fastest replies leave no one in dread.

Enjoy it, you say?
There be not a doubt,

We greet you with smiles,
And never with pouts.

Inspired by and in homage to 'Better Than You',
