colorful language

A Poem by recantichize
"

a look at the common occurrence of cursing.

"
in speech i swear, i curse in life 
as i do not see a real reason not to.
just words, when used properly infuse gravity,
depravity, levity, priority, and urgency.
they punctuate my tounge.
lip trip, quip trip, rip it.
but,
i do not swear in writing, not in
english anyways; but you can't read that
so it doesn't really count. somehow
on the page it looks cheap. 
do i sound garrish, do i do a disservice
to my education or myself
when my lips slip?
coño..

This was a mirthful piece, like a little ditty one would hum. Especially in the rhymes throughout, which again do not take themselves seriously and are all the better for it. Reading this aloud had me reciting it with a sing-song quality, and again this just seemed to fit.

I enjoyed it immensely because it was genuinely humorous, not at all morbid or obsessed with shouting about perceived ills and woes against a stormy night. It genuinely brought a smile to my lips, and I cannot think of a better compliment. It is hard to do humour well, but this piece does it with poise.

Bravo! Looking forward to reading more.

Unique with a great topic. I have felt this way myself most of my life but never been able to articulate it so well as:

when used properly infuse gravity,
depravity, levity, priority, and urgency.

ah, gravity.... I like the cerebral quality of this juxtaposed with the outer, physical reality.
The rhythmic flow really bridges the inner/outer impressions well. good stuff.
