Light Airy



Remain imperious
Believe in the fairy
Keep it mysterious, never be light airy
Remain unresponsive
Believe in disregard
Keep it inconclusive, never be avant-garde
Remain implacable
Believe in mulishness
Keep it inexorable, never be decorous
Remain noncommittal
Believe in abstraction
Keep it flimsy brittle, never be reaction
Remain unscrupulous
Believe in disrespect
Keep it mischievous, never be circumspect
Remain unkind-hearted
Believe in vile untruth
Soon you'll be disparted for being so uncouth
