There are no new metaphors
Just the drab old ones
Bottled in the synonyms
(Straight out of Thesaurus)
Carefulness is parenthesized
Like the laminated feeble ID cards;
Meanings are too weak to hold out
but nevertheless a filler.
So let me make it
Ergo, break it into these lines
And leave you wondering what struck you
Some trick or mediocrity?
