KILTER – KITE

To those whose existence has grown out of kilter,
Who view the whole world through a gloomy brown filter:
Go fly a kite till anxiety passes,
Then you'll see life through rose-coloured glasses.

The rate at which we digress
Allows turbulent diffusion to profess,
Chatter from a dimensionless glimmer.
As we speak, the prospects seem dimmer.

A theology student from Texas
Said: "God's threefold form is a nexus —
A plenum of Being,
All-knowing, all-seeing —
A dense ontological plexus".

An artist must sometimes rebel
And his many detractors repel
No Renaissance painting
Had teenagers fainting
But even the fakes will resell

D'j'ever notice how "rebel" the noun and "rebel" the verb are the same letters, but pronounced differently?

And Polish and polish, and a few other sets. But those are mostly very different words that happen to spell the same, but rebel and rebel have the same root.

Read and read are different tenses of the same verb, and they do it too.

MEGALOMANIA – MERETRICIOUS

Caesar Augustus, the
First Roman emperor,
Pacified rebels with
Pomp and display.

Statues reflected his
Megalomania;
Though meretricious, they
Showed he held sway.

In seventeenth-century France
The royals enjoyed a good dance,
With riffs on the viol
In true Baroque style,
And vocal additions, perchance.

I tried to design a new logo,
But time after time it was no go.
I would pace and I'd lounge,
Through my brain I would scrounge,
But it all looked like Walt Kelly's Pogo.

It has been a while, but I can accept harsh criticism!
