Vocabulary Lesson prose poem

Uploaded by Bob Gosney

it’s true
that I am cerebral and erudite
I use words both pithy
and expositional

which is to say
I am constantly engaged
in the act of expounding,
setting forth, and explaining
my point of view

allow me to pontificate-
I am an expert in the English language
I am a licensed poet
(The Nebraska School of Inane Verse,
1993 alumni)

so believe me when I tell you
that all poetry- especially mine
is true

as my poetry teacher
Ms. Ida Claire
from North Platte, Neb.
who I served under for many years
(don’t read too much into that)

she said

most poetry is bullshit
but some of it is true

what a wise woman
intelligent, insightful, and sagacious

I can’t wait to see her again
as soon as she negates
the current Restraining Order

negate:
cancel, retract, disaffirm

so here’s your vocabulary lesson
for today

it don’t mean nothin’
if you don’t learn nothin’

vocabulary- get some today
