Words, Words, Twaddle, 3

(We all dislike/hate certain words and locutions; here are some of mine.)

Pole Dance

“Let's run it up the flagpole,” Ted
Declared with very eager face.  
I wouldn't like to see Ted dead,
But blast him with a spray of mace?

Yes, that's a punishment condign—
To spray right back what he has sprayed:
A toxic thing, a certain sign
His English language has decayed.
