Good one, BranShea; light, with charm.
Here's a heavy one, without charm:
________________________________________________

Immaterialism - Determinism; lacks tack
Add the antics of semantics for cognate impact
Our thoughts are matter
Our chatter is matter
But "What is matter?" is a matter too abstract

IMMATERIALISM - IMPACT

Edit Reason: To continue Rhube's two words

Is that the last word on the subject? Or perhaps it's the last two words that we lack.

For sculpture I don’t give a fart
But to draw a cartoon is an Art.
I’d not clutter my floor
With a bronze Henry Moore
But Da Vinci !!! bring on by the Cart!

I've just two words for you, RC: "Thank you".

Your dandy poem reminded me of a dandy named Art Davis, a classmate of mine at Elmore High. After passing Art in the hallway we would whisper "Yes it is pretty, but is it Art?"

By the way, do you have two nice new words for the dandy people of this forum? smile

Searching for meaning that life has secluded
I joined the hippies singing We Shall Overcome
We didn't: so I stopped singing
And made up a new ole saying
Singing: The Wiser I Get The Less Young I Become

PEDUNCLE - PELVIS

I once saw a giant peduncle
With a bloom twice as big as my uncle,
Whose putrescent pelvis
Has so bad a smell Vis-
igoths won't come near, but a skunk'll.
