A poor life this

What is this life if, lacking wit
We halfbake slipshod, feeble shit
Bad spelling and worse punctuation
Tangled, garbled explanation
Rambling sci-fi plagiarisms
Magic, GM-organisms
Uninspired and overwrought
We foist each scant, substandard thought
On unexpecting 'bakers, then
WE DO THE WHOLE THING ONCE AGAIN!
The best inventions we can muster
Are, in a nutshell, lacking lustre
A poor life this if, dull indeed
We constantly get M.F.D'd
