Churlish is a word

Meaning boorish and surly

I ask if you knew this

And you say, “Surely!

Now smell of my feet

And feast of my nostril

Of all my t’s dotteh

And all my eyes crosstril!

Avast! Avast! And once more avast!

And never shall ye rhyme a word with avast!”

And I think to myself

Like swine before pearlish

You have just shown me

The meaning of churlish
