All Hail a Poet Laureate!

Sometimes one finds the funniest things in the "Comments" section of many news or gossip items. Yesterday's delight (2/19/10) was contained in that section following an op-ed piece about Tiger Wood's apology on (a wonderfully dishy site.)

It is attributed to one "Betty Crocker" and the first two lines can be googled to read all of the poem. In abridged form:

Tyger, tyger, burning bright
Like a hotel sign in the night
What inflated boob or thigh
Have you not touched then told a lie?

(two more verses)

Was this a bogey, a hole in one?
Who else's fairways have you shorn?
O how your story turns a pivot
Just tell us, and fill in your divot.

Yes, of course, it's based on William Blake's poem of the same name.
