A Conniption Fit

This poem was written in answer to The Word of the Day Challenge:

Conniption means: a fit of rage or hysterics.

Here’s what I came up with…

A Conniption Fit

Hey don’t have a conniption fit

You sold me a Junker car, you twit

Don’t get mad, it was good when you left

Selling dodgy goods is a type of theft

Save the conniption fit, pal

I’ll throw you in the canal

Stop with all the rage

Damn it! You should be in a cage

Gah, now she’s having a conniption fit too

Well, she broke the heel on her shoe

There’s still no need for an outburst

Those were nice shoes, for her it’s the worst

Is everybody having a conniption fit here?

She’s in hysterics having fallen off her chair

But that’s laughter, she’s not having a tantrum

You mean, like that robber after a ransom

A conniption is an outburst of violent emotion

An explosion of temper, causing a commotion

Such an outpouring of rage will always do harm

Don’t have a conniption fit, enhance your calm

Thanks for reading my friends. As always there are more stories and poems to be enjoyed (I hope) in the Short Stories and Short Stories 2 and Poetry Corner tabs.

Have a great day!
