Why do you stoop to such low words?
They only make you sound absurd!
Such foolish words should not be heard
From such a mind as yours.

The dictionary overflows
With better offerings than those –
Much more descriptive (don’t you know?)
Than words which are impure.

In speech, let’s take the higher road
That lifts the hearers to God’s throne,
Which makes folks smile – instead of groan –
And blessings will secure.
