Impact Is Not a Verb

Did your affect effect a defect
Creating criticism to deflect

Aver versus avow, wow
Explain their usage somehow

Will you defer, infer or imply
‘Cause clarity’s the reason why

Shall we gerry-rig or jury-build
Leave latent structure unfulfilled

Ruminate, cogitate and speculate
Perhaps perseverate then hesitate

To take a meeting with our lexicon
Reach out, keynote, before it’s gone      

Sign up for e-mailed dispatches from the Crooked 9; they arrive in the slick of slime.
