Et cetera and the rest



I always thought it was a lazy word             

As though the speaker’s mind was blurred           

I’d rather hear a word quite absurd            

Et cetera is best unheard     

                                   

Really, borrowed words such as this                     

Must certainly not be hit or miss                             

But meaningful and sound like bliss                       

Then the speaker will deserve a kiss                     

 

So from my rhyme I must be gone              

And to avoid sounding like a moron                      

Please remove it from your lexicon            

“and others; and so forth; and so on”
