The Dangerous Contest

From Plastic Tub

A Honorable Past-Time

A massive exercise in disgust, narrowly disguised as a post-modern poem. The structure resembles alternating salvos of a sensory-heightened version of the "Your Mama is so..." dialoguette popular in schoolyards and basketball courts, heartily appropriated and extended by La Ligue du Masque Cancéreux who call them "Duels de Tchatche."

Poetical Structure

The exercise is composed of two members, each taking turns replying to others versical boasts and defaming insults. The initiatory phrase conjoining the combat is the pesky childhood refrain: "Pus Pus Parasite, Cum-Crusted Tonguebite."
