A Woman's Reason

Poem By Gelett Burgess

I'm Sure every Word that you say is Absurd;
I Say it's All Gummidge and Twaddle;
You may Argue away till the 19th of May,
But I don't like the Sound of the Moddle!

The poem could not be easily understood owing to the unfamiliarity of words the poet selected. May be my ignorance of understanding capacity that I understand but I think that a poet when writes the poems are normally comes the words from his inner hearts of thinking and in that ankle the rythm of the poem is good.
What is this? the poet should add a footnote for the reader to relate well
Not much. I did a quick dictionary search for gummidge and moddle, to no avail. Don't know why the 19th of May is significant here. This isn't a very compelling poem.
I feel it is a bit sarcastic, and simple syntax Padraic O Cinneide
