''Foo-Foo'' Words - Poem by Mary Nagy

If it takes fancy language
to make your eyes delight
you may not want to read this
or hey, maybe you might! ?

I don't use words like ''Fabulous! ''
or ''That's simply divine! ''
I might say ''Hey, I like that! ''
or ''Wow, now that is FINE! ''

You'll never see a ''Thou'' here
and you'll never spot a ''Thee''
I can't pronounce the big words.
They're not my cup of tea!

I may say ''What the heck was that? ''
or ''Woohoo! I feel good! ''
I see no sense in ''foo-foo'' words
if they're not understood.

    Haha, reminds me of stereotyped old British misers who sit around in mansions playing chess all day... or a drag queen... 'simply divine'. I see your style here, but 'divine' is such a nice word, though! A nice read.

    This is fabulous, Mary! lol Simply divine.

    I had to laugh out loud as I read this because I DO use these words every once in a while, but it's habit. When you're raised around these kinds of words or when you have friends that use them they rub off, you know? lol Great job.

    Every so often, I learn a big word, but normally I can't retain it. (Report)Reply
