(A parade of words and phrases eligible for retirement.)
“A necessary evil”—Let’s
Expatiate a little bit.
It’s what a dire opponent gets
For giving us annoying ***t.
And so we nuke the dreary dude—
Or trash him via cyberspace.
It’s what he gets for being rude—
Forgetting what’s his proper place.
We hide our evils in cliché.
Thus words diminish what we do,
For we can always find a way
To pour our poison over you.
