How aptly archaic

Is the word ‘archaic’

To mean antiquated

While itself outdated

Much like the word ‘erudite

Which means educated

And is only ever spoken

By the highly literate

Or by those considered ‘magniloquent

Now there’s a fancy word!

Which, of course, means pompous

(And it’s probably the most pompous word

That I have ever heard!)


Now, I do hope this poem

Hasn’t been too ‘obfuscatory

(That meansย hard to understand – by the way)

I may have got a little distracted

So, for that, I’m sorry
