A Cliche Is The World, part 1

Poetry By: Aranea

Attempting to show one can convey deeper meaning using almost solely cliches.

A Cliche is The World, Part 1.

The world is a cliche

Long over used and trite

With stale airs parading decayed conclusions

Of hackneyed discoveries

Eureka! Even a blind pig can find an acorn

You must kiss a few frogs to find a prince /but/ finders keepers, losers weepers

Sadder but wiser /yet/ as strong as an ox

The world is a cliche


As every school boy knows, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing /when/

The world is a cliche

I don't know how to break this too you but, the devil you know is better than the devil you don't /for/

He don't know crap from Crisco /or/ his elbow from his asshole

Life is like a box of chocolates you never know what you're getting /so/ know thyself

Know the ropes, know what side the bread is buttered on /for/

The world is a cliche

/And/ they don't know jack about it.


Poem by E.VA.
