Eulogy Hyperbole



Usually, mockery is ridicule of fun.
Undue condescension could take away the sun.

Usually, effigy is conflagrate of hate.
Undue denigration could take away the slate.

Usually, imagery is appearance of like.
Undue replication could take away the strike.

Usually, energy is dynamic of force.
Undue trepidation could take away the source.

Usually, fantasy is expose' of scope.
Undue rumination could take away the hope.

Usually, eulogy is accolade of loss.
Undue veneration could take away the gloss.

Usually hyperbole is parody of tact.
Undue augmentation could take away the fact.
