Vocabulary


Oh how you frustrate me!
So often boxing in my creativity.
I wish you wouldn't pose such difficulty,
drawing such effort to pin down precisely.
You call too steep a fee
from those of us who are lazy.
Ah! Life would be so easy
if only knowledge of you could be
more of an innate capacity.
Nevertheless, I revel in your intricacy
and I will never grow weary
of this glorious battle that is vocabulary.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
