Dictionary Digestion

 

Did you eat an encyclopedia, swallow it intact?

Is that where they all come from – the fact that follows fact?

 

You dazzle me with your use of these so specific terms

when you rattle on and on about these things I did not learn.

 

Your use of so much jargon is really quite astounding,

but I really cannot understand without some subject grounding.

 

Did you swallow up a dictionary, digesting all these words?

Is that where they’ve all come from, these obscurities I’ve heard?

 

A thesaurus I am needing here if I’m to find a way

of making sense of so many of the words that you do say.

 

I know you think it’s clever when you rabbit on and on

but maybe you should wise up and see your audience is gone;

 

you’ve lost all of the attention, no one knows what you’re about

-- so make it understandable if you want to leave no doubt.
