Words, Words, Twaddle, 21

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

Death in the Afternoon

Do I love “workshop” as a verb?
I guess there are more ugly sounds—
Though few can equally disturb
My equanimity. Bad rounds

Of golf, insomnia, the flu,
A ruined nap, a blizzard—these
Tend to annoy both me and you.
But “workshop” as a verb! Oh, please!

Stop using it! Immediately!
Or I (and let me not be vague)
Will find you sleeping peacefully—
Inject you with bubonic plague!
