There’s no simplicity with verbosity
and the gasp I can’t grasp
Yet a mind with great velocity
eases the struggles of a task
Wordiness perceived as baloney?
their true meanings misplaced
Speechless words often a novelty
especially when used to save face
Methinks it best to act responsibly
keep it short, crisp and concise
Let’s not forget the value of honesty
its benefits mingle with good advice
Costly moments taxed by grandiosity
measures of time are not ours to waste

A gander at me –
I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals.
This piece is one of several of my published poems l refer to as “a shoulder pad attitude”.
