W.C. Williams Imitation

William Carlos Williams is one of my favorite poets. One writing exercise I like to do involves mimicking my favorite writers, so I wrote this poem, based on W.C.W.'s poem of the same name, which involves fewer governments and more plums.

This is Just to Say

I have disbanded
the government
of which you were
so fond

and which
you probably
wanted
not to change.

Forgive me;
it was horrible,
so rotten
and so vile.
