“Sarcasm is the last refuge of the imaginatively bankrupt.”-Cassandra Clare
Word of the week–asperity–noun-harshness, sharpness, abrasiveness, severity, tartness, sarcasm
Ain’t no sunshine behind a wall of asperity
Don’t like the popularity of vulgarity
Nor, the paper doll effect of insincerity
Flimsy stenciled characters with no personality
Let’s question their value of ambidexterity
Surely, selfies will reflect any disparity
Hence, the importance of purposeful celerity
The world’s adrift seeking prosperity
But to much dismay finding only hilarity
