When speaking in the vernacular,
try always to be spectacular,
don't force or appear too muscular,
or overstate your point.
Never lower yourself to cursing,
remember the thoughts your birthing,
those common souls are hurting,
and look up to your words of truth.
Engage in language discernible,
their dictionaries aren't returnable,
and know they want to be earn-able,
as the object of your speech.
When lowering yourself to address them,
always smile and possess them,
for they are the weak, so impress them,
with your compassionate, supercilious guile.
For when your words are finally through,
and their hearts are filled, and they renewed,
from your wisdom and your sparkling truths,
it is you who saves the day.
For engaging in the vernacular,
is in humility an act of who you are,
kind and giving, a shining star,
to those uneducated common folk.
So keep it simple, keep it strong,
don't let them know that they are wrong,
and remember who will benefit long,
from your momentary grace.
