Words that flew into my life from Webster’s 3rd …
ear banger noun.
Over anxious to please one’s superiors or seniors
He didn’t like that guy too near,
The one whose words assailed the ear
Relentlessly. He wished to please,
But everyone I know agrees
He banged the ear so constantly
That it annoyed both them and me.
And so we formed a secret pact
And took him to a forest tract
And bound him there while songbirds sang—
Oh, all day long his ears they’d bang.
And he came home an altered man,
Now listens to us—all he can.
