Another rumor

For more ample illustration of the recently invented form:

It could be said that
pineapple tastes delicious,
but you don't have to
take anybody's word for it.

– Lem Bloomfield

Love the rumor poetry form.

It could be said that
The Simpsons are funny
but I'd rather not say that.

Uh oh my rumor form had only 3 lines...must it have 4 lines? Let me know...I'll try again.

Not to worry - 3 or 4 lines don't matter to rumor. Rumor likes variety. I'm thinking of the possibility of much more substantial rumors with, let's say, 10 or 15 lines. The main thing, as you've guessed, is the "It could be said that" at the beginning and the "but" clause that follows. Yours is funny! Thanks!
