I always found words fascinating.
Whether debating the designated hitter
or tossing bitter barbs at rubes
who choose to question my side.
I take pride in the aplomb I’ve amassed,
for I have surpassed the vocabulary
I once thought scary in the day.
I must say it has grown. It has shown me
new ways of expressing what I’ve been
guessing had been on my mind.
I find my thesaurus a great tool,
and I never fool with my dictionary.
It feeds my vocabulary.
I have one, only bigger!
