Those who speak in platitudes
That have us really wincing
Have those kinds of attitudes
Which aren't too convincing

Why don't they say things as they are?
Triteness isn't needed
They'd be successful, more by far
If this advice was heeded

If speaking less with grand design
That they think is so fantastic
We'd be more apt to them consign
Reputations much less plastic
