Smell a Fraud

Smell a Fraud

I smell a fraud – and know the fraud I smell.
He’s pushing classical mis-education.
The cat is dead—but mice still hear the bell.
I smell a fraud and know the fraud I smell.
He’s under rhetoric’s insistent spell
But screws up every earnest peroration.
I smell a fraud – and know the fraud I smell.
He’s pushing classical mis-education.

–Tom Riley
