scooch before you throw a janky conniption fit

I had a conniption fit
what words, what words these?
slangs are not my forte
I felt so janky
suppose it is better than being cranky
I will persist
why should I resist
that challenge thrown to poets
zany words suit me fine
just as the normal ones do

"ok, you scooch, ok, you scooch"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

conniption; noun: a bad tantrum. One has a conniption or conniption fit.
