Obviously Out of Order

Oblivious, of Course

Ollie’s offensive, but nothing to dread,
Out to oblige, as he buries his head.
Feathers a-fly,
His schemes go awry –
Outlining options, omitted instead.

Every occasion, his oompah is off.
Mid-obsolescing, his plume he will doff.
Yet unaware
Others don’t care,
He still misinterprets salute from a scoff.
