Empty Page

It need not rhyme, it need not flow It need no essence of truth Just proliferate, exaggerate And be sure to convolute With flexous and circuitous jargon, fruiton soon to find Scholars will praise your erudition,and vilipend the simple of mind It need not passion, it need not soul It need not emotion convey For imperious wordsmiths write verse to cajole With nothing of substance to say Just aberrate,divigate, affirm you wish not to profess Just cloak, conceal, as you disseminate your page's emptiness It need not sorrow, it need not elation It not your mind reveal Words are just wasted with no explanations Nihility holds no appeal Exacerbate, exasperate, as fading tales of yore Leave you unremembered for your words are too obscure
