Words, Words, Twaddle, 31

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

Your Strategy Eyes

You say you want to “strategize”?
It shouldn't come as much surprise
To learn what such a dumb word buys:

It sets some awful passions loose;
Some violence it will produce,
Involving rope—a hangman’s noose.

And there you’ll dangle in the breeze—
A cougar dining on your knees—
From one of nature’s handy trees.

And while you feel your soul fly free
And head—Oh where? Well, don’t ask me!—
Please contemplate your strategy.
