Wordsmith Commentary - Poem by Joe Duvernay

Summery executions
Orders to prevail
Needs for other memories
Shades of Scottish skies
Cautioned tooth and nail. No small choice to narrow even further here!
No time to strain and fain and pain and temple building annoyances.
My oft' heard wails and screams and twice awful doubts.
My thrice worn scripts and chews and stouts. Would you dare leave 'that' one as is?
Will you...walk away from this one too?
That question had to be asked!
That talk of narrowing, what peace can it bring?
None I suspect!
Not one whit, not without wit!
Not one try, without cry.
No one dares without doubt
No one achieves without stout.
All reasons for eschewing
All tales of miscuing!
