Denigration Stabs Eclat



Denigration stabs eclat and slits a deference.
Commendation gives cachet
and revives reverence.
Deprivation stirs desire and whets the appetite.
Satisfaction quenches fire
and calentures requite.
Accusation barks dispute and starts a recital.
Vindication aborts hoot
and defends acquittal.
Agitation prods tumult and spurs a disorder.
Meditation vetoes fault
and becomes auditor.
Dissipation halts advance and forms a besetment.
Inspiration rebuffs stance
and impels assessment.
Amputation cuts disease and prunes a pestilence.
Restoration tenders keys
and upholds pertinence.
