Misanthrope Mantra

Allowing awfully awkward arguments to arise
Self-doubt secludes, so sequestered, sadly... sans surprise
Madly muttering melancholy mottos
 Odius, obtuse obligation on auto
Deftly denying deteriorating destruction
Somehow sickly surrendering Soul's suction
Humbly hemming-n-hawing, half-assed heretic
 Dejected densely dimwitted dumb ass derelict!!
Cautiously cradling cuddly collected captions
 Abandoning all assertive able action
Forgetting forlorn feats, fastidiously folding
  Meandering movement mutates morals molding
Leering looks like loathsome lovers lying
Forsaken feelings foster festered fish frying

Eating every emotion equally
Fantasizing freefall freedom frequently
Evenly eviscerate existential existence
Ruefully relish relinquishing rancid resistance

    Wow, Steve, excellent exercise in alliteration that comes together quite nicely. My favorite line was "...festered fish frying." You are really on a roll here! Love, Carolyn
