ODE TO A FOUR LETTER WORD
In everyday life, this word does exist
But it appears in no book, no record or list
It expresses love, hate, disgust or bad luck
It's a four letter word, yes you've guessed it - 'Fuck'.
As a verb it is transitive, active or passive
The range of its use is, quite simply, massive
'To fuck, I'm F**ked, F**k you!' Oh I say
The number of times it is used every day!
As a noble word it is no way respected
But through every day use it is now quite accepected
And in historic events both important and trivial
It's use has been angry, sad or convivial!
In the Garden of Eden, in the very beginning
It was the same word that invented sinning
If Adam hadn't said 'Let's fuck' to his mate
The world wouldn't be in this terrible state!
Then Jesus himself, as he hung on his cross
The stories do say, was at a real loss
'Oh dad, tell me, what the fuck have I done
That you let this happen to your very own son?'
More recently, Napoleon, Hitler and Hess
All got themselves into a hell of a mess
And as they tried vainly passing the buck
Each spoke the emortal words 'Oh fuck!'
Then in '69, the first man on the moon
Neil Armstrong by name, a veritable goon
He said 'Wow, I've come over all queer
You know, theres no Fucking gravity here!'
Then in the '80s, Maggie came to power
Friend and foe alike were all made to cower
And when the Argies the Falklands raided
'Fuck them', she said and reinvaded!
So you can see now that this word is still here
It's used be the famous, the rich and the peers
It's considered to be low, 'working class', and rude,
Unsociable, unspeakable, derogatory and crude
But listen to me, and hear what I say
It's been here for years, and it's here to stay
And if anyone complains or moans when you use it
Tell them to 'Fuck off and die!'
