Torpefied

I’ve used so many words so wrong,
I finally up and said, “So long!
To writing prose, and making sense.”
Agreeing neither verb nor tense
I throw down any word I see,
And call the whole thing poetry.

Now, more than one’s upbraided me
For arcane terminology;
These words that seem a bit obscure –
Tabescent, or with scant allure.
Perhaps, the whole thing is a ruse:
It’s poetry!
That’s my excuse.


(In poetry, any words used incorrectly, even when accidental, are deliberate. – Owen)

Owen "Beleaguered" Servant (a/k/a Sibelius Russell) writes poetry mostly, with an occasional pause to have a seizure.
