When people run off at the mouth, it's tough:
A snooze, a total drag!
Why must they try to cram five pounds of stuff
In a two-pound bag?
Since brevity's a virtue, I'll be brief:
Please let your words be few!
Long lectures leave us sighing for relief
That won't come through.
A speech should carry energy and sinew,
Not feel like household chores.
It's never the dynamic who continue,
Always the bores.
(I must, of course, plead guilty every day
To what I here condemn.
I always take a hundred words to say
What could be said in ten.)
