Poor Little Words

Poor little orphaned words
Abandoned and alone
Censored for their commonness
Condemned for clichés.

No one wants to utter them
They shrivel up and die
Too usual for poetry
Too plain for writing prose

Hackneyed expressions
Mixed up with habituality
Rolled in colloquialism
And sprinkled with the ordinary

Poor little orphaned words
Abandoned and alone
Censored for their commonness
Condemned for clichés.

Poor, poor little orphaned words.
