Fancy words

24 April 2015  9:09 AM

Fancy words long and eloquent 
are daily spoken and ill spent

Spouting words most don't understand
To look tall and in command

Does one want to really be heard
Or is it pride in guise of lovely word

The gift of gab is gab indeed
most who use it seek to deceive 

Liars lawyers politicians
Well dressed lounge lizards with evening ambitions

Spiders they are with their tangled webs
Placed just right so look ahead

If you can't make sense of what they say
Watch out and be careful or you will be their prey
