Mandatory missions make messy inhibitions
Naked needs, never naught, draw such decisions
Overmuch outward, onward oscillations to places set
Particular penury, perhaps perchance regret.
Qualified, quantified, questioned quarrelled much
Resistance recovered readily, reminded such
Statements sworn, suggestions spoke with a simple verve
Total training, tactless teaching, which will never serve
Under upwards, using urges, set along a path
Varying victories, venerating, vindicating, just for a laugh.
Welcomed with wayward wishes, anything a’new
Extant xrays, exhaling explains what you can see through
Zippiest, zingiest, zestiest zoolatry, speaking of the beast
Amorphous action, an analogy of the journey’s feast.
Best began, begat borrowed from, learned by rote
Clarion cymbal, cacophony crumbles, on a simple note
Devoted deadly, double down and unsteady
Enriched exceptions ever echo we are not ready
Finding futile, fudging fables told to make a point
Given grace, gambled gladly, passed on to anoint
Hapless hands hate holding on, be gone and let me go
I invite idiot idioms, you see as I throw
Junctures joined, juries judging as we must the move
Killing Kraken, kidding killjoys that here is the groove
Let leavings lately left always be bereft
Yes yet you yap, I read the trap, and best laid plans are best....
Tis just my thinking...........
