Poet at Polis inauguration worse than Vogon poetry

Let's start with the worst poetry in the word for comparison and then move on to Anne Waldman and you can tell me where you think she rates.

Oh freddled gruntbuggly,

And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles,
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts
With my blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!
