Certain Words - Poem by Nsisong Bassey

There are certain words i hate
Like cheers, enjoy, and penetrate,
There are others I adore
Glimpse, glimmer, gawk and celebrate,
There are words that make me cringe
Murder, stalker, bigot, stooge,
There are others that evoke a smile
Babies, birthdays, candy, aisle,
There are those that i avoid
Peradventure, Magnanimousness, ovoid
And there are some that i cherish
Lover, saviour, bookish

    Poetry as a language comes out so well in this poem. Hate them, like them or adore them...they come out nicely when used in poetry. Good work. (Report) Reply
