Duplicitous - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Isn't it duplicitous,
To duplicated duplicity?

Run that by me one more time.
What is being duplicitous? '

A duplification.

But what duplification is duplicitous,
To qualify as being a duplicity?
You leave me stupefied.'

That's on you.
I'm not the one to introduce,
A stupefying of a stupefication.
Although I will admit,
The act of it can be duplicitous...
If stupidity was the topic.
But it isn't.

'Then what is? '

A duplification of one who is duplicitous.

'But who or what is being duplicitous? '

Anything that dupicates duplicity.
But apparently...
Your being stupefied complicates the issue.

'Do 'us' a favor! '


'Take your duplicity somewhere else,
To be duplicitous.
And I'll be okay with you leaving me stupefied.'

Trust me...
I will not be offended.
The doing is as sure as done.
