Roses are Black

Cliches are disgusting.

The common language makes me

want to curl up into a ball

and never say another word;

if one of my metaphors someday finds

a home in every man’s mouth,

I want it shot out of existence.

  1. Oh I agree. Cliches thrown around carelessly. On careful examination they are quite often very inappropriate. Cheap words to fill the space they otherwise struggle with perhaps?

Thoughts? I love those.
