    AMPHIGORY poetry is usually nonsense verse of any amount of lines, especially in the case of nonsense parodies. Silliness and wit are the main goals of the amphigory poem; something that amuses whilst requiring the least bit of inside knowledge.

    Example by Jacquii Cooke:

    excerpt from Clarice's Holiday

    Comment on ghetto stoop:

    You who cower foul are coward fowl
    like Thanksgiving turkey: stuffed indeed.
    I look forward to the pecan pie,
    yet by-and-by where is God?;
    and to whom are you giving thanks anyway?
