Fugedaboudit, an expressive word
In New York, where it's most usually heard
What it expresses often depends
On just what it's user at that moment intends
It could mean, for example, "Who ya kiddin?"
"Or what ya said should be forbidden"
Or, "If ya ain't jokin
Ya gotta be smokin"
"No way, ya can't be serious"
A dismissal that's somewhat imperious

A rhythmic slang-y shortcut
Emotionally expressed
A colorful portrait
Expressed with much zest

Not found in a dictionary or a thesaurus
It's Gotham's esoteric linguistic chorus

There will come a time when we do not need slang to express our true, most inner profound emotions! :)

Most amusing, Mr Cooper!
And very expressive, as you rightly write.
I enjoyed the rhymes and the New York dialect.
