Words, Words, Twaddle, 10

(We all dislike/hate certain words and locutions; here are some of mine.)

The Long View

You mentioned “helicopter view”
When we were in a mild debate.
It made me think of what I'd do—
Or, better yet, what I'd create

To cure you of infirmities—
Like saying “helicopter view.”
I'd coax you (by some slow degrees)
To some steep cliff-side rendezvous,

And then when once your back was turned,
I'd give a shove. Good-bye to you!
And thus your lesson would be learned—
And with a helicopter view!
