Communication

" You know, you know" you say
after almost every sentence
am I a mind reader that I should know
even before you have spoken?

Cut out the frills like the many
"I think, I think s",fake accents,
repeating same word many times for style
and you will get to me faster and clearer,
believe me, there's merit in simplicity....

  1. I too find it irritating when some speak stylish English repeating these words in every sentence. Quite often we have to strain to understand what they actual mean.
    Yes, simplicity is the best tool in communication.
