Remediated Discourse

If all writing is, indeed, a mere ruse, Why do I need an inspirational muse, or editor my syntax to masseuse Mind's eye is vapid and obtuse; My brain is calling an immediate truce Inane pretenses no longer refuse, and with sixth sense consciously fuse Mundane fare is now abstruse; Morose wit critics dare not abuse, or for lack of purpose, design accuse Metaphors, metonymies tightly noose; Colloquial sayings, truisms freely infuse Slang terms, archaic words out of use, In remediated discourse common, diffuse Choppy meter, bland rhyme schemes choose; No rhythmic patterns, contrived forms to confuse Do not need with limericks, riddles to bemuse; Trite puns, silly jabs will laughter's tonic effuse
