Obfuscation

The Modern Leper by addsuns@deviantart.com

Polysyllabic platitudes of pensive prose performed per proper phraseology parameters
Quickly and quiescently quaffing quaint quietude
Rearranging relativity and rolling r’s to reflect refinement
Subtly stringing synonymous sentences in sequences surely
Trumping truth to triumphantly transcend transcendentalism
Understanding the ubiquity of uselessness
Veritably vegetating in varieties of vagabond
Wordsmithing willingly whining without wrangling
Xerotically extracting xenomorphic and xenogametic xerocopies
Yearning yonderly yede yon to
Zen

Neil White, 2013

If you haven’t figured it out the poem basically says nothing, but it was a fun exercise in both form and vocabulary and I appreciate the number of sights out there dedicated to scrabble words and words starting with unusual letters. Enjoy my exercise in obfuscatory alliteration.
