A prose poem - an introduction to Trash Talking 101...
|I’ve explored the enormous depths
And fathomed the innermost reaches
Of human thoughts and purpose
For quite an appreciably long time,
Only to note the truly angelic qualities
That I and others bring to their happy,
Sociable, and often testy
Interactive, trash-talking times.
Besides talking bold, brash, hearty words,
We must actually perform soulful, honest work
In somewhat lengthy duration
In our blessed, jubilant social lives –
Associating our own guilt to those activities
Would surely spell imminent ruin
For our important efforts,
And alert everyone of our subconscious,
And highly deleterious ways.
Therefore, in a friendly, positive, and supportive way,
We are truly angels,
You and I,
Despite gravitating toward useless,
But hearty and meaningful,
