Linguistically Speaking – a Poem by Dominic Williams

Linguistically Speaking

Subordination, coordination, validity in construction.

Estimation, decimation, extensive in destruction.

Clausality, disparity, declarity and structure.

Preliminary, principally, restrictively and stricture.


Complementing and exclaiming, interrogatively.

Declaring and comparing, expositionally.

Expression, constituents we modify.

Verbosity, conceptions to clarify.


Words and sentences, distressing.

Speech and dictact, progressing.

Spirit and humanity, repressing

Thought and pleasure, digressing.


Linguistically speaking, prepositionally tweaking.

Vocabulary constantly evolving.

Intrinsically created, grammatically mutated.

Language, communication, devolving.
