Patrick J. Dimosthenis – Terse Verse Lyrics
Does it matter how long his words have to be?
Should his wording be tall? as tall as a tree?
He can't think of much to say and express
He tends to keep it terse for you to excess
But now, it is different he wishes to extend
He wants to expend and never let this end
Shall he start now? should it be a paragraph?
There is no need to laugh or count this as half
Nonsense is a ghost, it died with lies
The gods will deny? or despise in his eyes?
This is no free-write, but a free-write and a couplet
No changing his mind, quiet on the set
Apollyon is sweating, his fear is not clear
Heartless to shed a tear, is its power still sheer?
Its end is arising? may there be some compromising?
Maybe he is bluffing, maybe he is bantering
His children run wild, they run far away
You daresay today that his poem was astray?
He musn't worry, shall a verse be terse
This wasn't his worst, will this curse ever
