Poem: Double negatives
Doubling a negation hasn’t never been done,
Ominous and threatening, wouldn’t never leave the meaning undone.
Under the words, it neither never adds class to a clause;
Beneath the bottom, nor not incite pleasure to a pause.
Lost it has- it’s never absent glory,
Ever twisting the tale, can’t never not complete the story.
Neither meets its never, as nor meets its not;
Ever never divulging to ones that know nothing about.
Granting passion in tone, never dismissing the disdain in voice;
Allowing time to rethink, never not hold to a choice.
Though it hasn’t never added confusion,
Impaling judgement, not never plaguing precision.
Vicious in its visions, hold the double negative with reverence;
Eluding doesn’t never aid, allude neither never nor not.
