The Lyrics

It’s a word that’s meaningless;
look everywhere, you’ll find
it assaulting ears/eyes like a shiv.
As a term it shows toothlessness…
hear/see it and I’m resigned.
To me a break I wish people would give.

“Awesome!” Please!! It’s such a bromide word;
those who use it have no clue.
“Awesome!” Please!! It’s a linguistic turd,
a term everyone should eschew.

I can find guys by the ton
who think they rhapsodize
when they rap it—it just makes me grieve.
As an expression, it’s a waste
and has metastasized.
From a claque of hacks they thieve.

“Awesome!” Please!! It’s such a “bro”-type word;
those who use it should go do.
penance! Please, not this semantic turd,
a term everyone should eschew.

You see: I don’t love it,
it is not my friend.
It’s been nauseating me
for years—it never ends…
seems like an eternity.
Why can’t it just suspend
and go, just go?

When I hear a triteness spree,
ears feel as if burned.
I ask myself: “How’s cursed vex-ling’ spawn?!
“Awesome!” is of rightness free.
For me, its users have earned
a place in “should be banned” words lexicon.

“Awesome!” Please!! It’s such a broken word;
those who use it should go do
penance, seize a large ligatured quirt
and use it dorsally to hew.
