Word to the wordy

When engaged in persiflage

Please refrain from spitting

A prolix, though rather sage

Makes dunandunating quite off-putting

Your paralipsis is a waste of time

A zugzwag frivolous indeed

No aeolist is at all sublime

Ultracrepidarian of tmesis do take heed

When in good company

Smile and do not bumble

No need for such frippery

Rather be polite and be humble


Once a word is said, it is gone

But often times it lingers on

Such flippant arrogance does annoy

Like the gassy hardy leaves of the savoy

But do go on.

Don’t mind me.

For I am quite enjoying you.

A vacuous fool… a star indeed.
