How It’s Done (An Ode Inspired By Fancy Words And Lack Of Outright Flattery)

Rating: 5.0

I’m tired of waiting for a wordsmith
To capture my immortal beauty in a verse
When one gets struck at last
And pays me homage
I’ll probably be pushing daisies in a hearse

So time has come for larger world to see
Wake up my little drummer boy
‘Tis ME

Cascading curls and fluid lines
Coruscating eyes, seductive smile
Impaling wit, mellifluous voice
(Big words, I know
But it’s and ode,
I have no choice!)

So there you go
Short, sweet, concise
And full of praise,
No mention of a vice
All flattery, down to the letter
C’mon wordsmith, your time to shine
Can you do better?

Well, show me what you got – I dare you

this should be a singles ad profile..if women and men described themselves this wonderfully we'd all be hitched! I find this more seductive and enticing than 'enjoys long walks on the beach and yodeling. hahah I doubt a wordsmith could top this..
