Stale, insipid, vapid vocabulary;
Those old, tired words
That are used without color;
They make for dull, uninspiring writing;
How rich is your word bank?
Swollen, bulging or lean?
If you only cash out
Without refurbishing, nourishing, refueling your vocabulary account,
Your language bank Manager will soon notify you your account is signalling red;
Worn out, hackneyed terminology
Will not play the trick;
If you want to reach the stars
In your writing career,
Drum this into your skull:
Words are the machine guns
With which writing wars are won.
