No More Pretty Words



Where'd all the pretty words go Phrases in the millions Now all we use are acronyms They're must be about kajillion Sure time is fast approaching We won't have need for words Only speak in capital letters No sentences will be heard Acting like those early cavemen Only gestures some quite crude Hubby wants some lovin' Letters will describe his mood Is this where we're all heading No need for loving gestures Drooling and uttering acronyms And grinning like a cheshire The epitome of intelligent beings Is their ability to utter words Grunts and a few capital letters Is all that's going to be heard! © Jack Ellison 2013

    UGH!! Good day, Jack!:) "Grunts and a few capital letters", so abstract and illogical. Perhaps there's much emotion generated, but it's likely to get doors slammed in its face. Interesting write! Have a great weekend, Mikki

    Lol, that will be a pretty sight - grunts. Just kidding! We'd become a lazy bunch, doesn't bother to open our mouths. Cute write, Jack. Hope it will not come to that!
