The Blarney Stone

a didactic poem When eloquence leaves you a’wanting, if verbal effluence you’re flaunting, should your audience appear daunting, kiss the Blarney Stone. I climbed the circular tower, reached the hundred ninety-third step, and waded through unhurried queue. I trembled with anxiety, gasped for ev’ry uncertain breath, and paused to view but then I knew. Hidden underneath the rampart this infamous bluestone will rest I shan’t pursue my lips on blue. When commonsense says, “No way”, if plain prudence seeks delay, should consequence have its say, pass the Blarney stone. 6
