“When a writer tries to explain too much, he’s out of time before he begins.”
Word of the week–verbosity-noun-the quality of using more words than needed; wordiness
synonyms-prolixity, redundancy, turgidity
There’s no simplicity with verbosity
and the gasp I can’t grasp
Yet a mind with great velocity
eases the struggles of a task
Wordiness perceived as baloney?
their true meanings misplaced
Speechless words often a novelty
especially when used to save face
Methinks it best to act responsibly
keep it short, crisp and concise
Let’s not forget the value of honesty
its benefits mingle with good advice
Costly moments taxed by grandiosity
measures of time are not ours to waste
