Poetry Magnum Opus

Poem on F.

Frank E Gibbard

Frank E Gibbard

About the letter F better being deft,


Some "f" words muted and just left


Unuttered, in polite discourses it's


Politic to know which side your roll


Is buttered, of course, if one's goal


Is to give the prosaic a poetic sheen.


No cause to be needlessly unclean,


Pure words purvey perfect meaning


Without phrases lewd or demeaning.


Isn't an expletive base in its essence


Effing inferior to poets' effervescence?

I'd wondered how you were going to tackle this one Frank. :icon_sunny: Pleased to agree that a use of clear, incisive, and intelligent language, carries much more weight than the accepted moronic filth we are subjected to every where we turn these days. Nicely done. Geoff

Thanks Geoff for that. Knew I was preaching to the converted in our pool of would-be wordsmiths.

Frank, count me among the converted. Tastefully done (close call at the end!) with a nice dose of word fun.
