Rookie - 20 Points (August 4th,1926 / New York City)

Malapropisms


Malapropisms are wordy misuse
Totally fraught with wordy abuse
Linguistically, wordy erroneous
Nomenclature-ly wordy felonious


You malaprop felons, abusers of speech
Lovers of language, should you impeach
You stand here accused of word instability
We convict you of malapropos culpability

So whether you write in prose or in rhyme
We’ll strive for punishment that fits your write crime
We’ll remove your thesaurus, dictionary too
All writing for you will be strictly taboo

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
