Enough Seriousness

Remember Twain, 
why be oblique 
when you can speak plain. 
Why write metropolis 
when city will do just the same, 
what is the outcome, 
where is the  gain. 
Linguistic gymnastics 
for captain fantastics
with tongues elastic 
leave me bewildered 
when not composed well, 
I spend hours to dwell 
on their meaning and keening 
then end up quite lost 
so I damn them to hell 
and read Kipling or Frost.
