Diarrhea

 

Though some might bemoan the fecundity of my loquacious effluence
It has never been my intention to discombobulate, perturb or flummox.
Whereas I would ostensibly apostatise the insipidity of mundane prose
There are those who would demur that vers libre lies not within the bailiwick of poesy;

Innocent as it is of alliteration, assonance, rhythm, rhyme or meter,
Nor even the resonance between the penultimate phoneme of some polysyllable
Reflected in the articulation of a sonorous diphthong in a subsequent ablative or gerund,
It is a contentious controversy which may never be susceptible to consensus.

If I might be permitted briefly to digress, in order to elucidate
That literary form is merely an aperture through which one may endeavour to communicate,
Then may it not be efficacious to abjure and abrogate prolixity and concatenation,
To be abstemious of verbosity, aspiring towards the idealistic acme of succinctness?

Although my vocabulary is incontrovertibly diminutive,
I require no authoritative dispensation in order to fabricate any conceptual edifice
For the edification of my hypothetical prospective readership:
No composition reminiscent of the Juggernaut of Biblical scripture
Shall be disseminated by the contrivances of my disingenuous calligraphy.
