Immutable Inspiration's gift
who dares repay short shrift,
entrusting to a literary hack
who from a meager candy sack,
a sophist's penny paramount,
the hackneyed treats hands out?
Pre-labeled code words dispense
voodoo priest's intoned nonsense,
yet, this afflatus was given you,
to trust Minerva's point of view.
