    Hi all. It feels wonderful to be sharing a favorite poem of mine with you magnanimous patrons out there.

    I would overwhelmingly appreciate if you commented on the same; and perhaps joined me in my endeavor to serve humanity; making me feel all the more special at my group at :

    http://www.groups.yahoo.com/group/nikhilparekhspoems .

    POEM:

    PRECIOUS ARE THOSE

    Spurious are those who bombastically manipulate,
    Hideous are those who barbarically cheat,
    Pompous are those who capriciously brag,
    Surreptitious are those who devilishly flirt,
    Prodigious are those who prolifically burgeon,
    Promiscuous are those who raunchily unleash,
    Lugubrious are those who remorsefully castigate,
    Dolorous are those who sullenly fret,
    Licentious are those who bawdily embrace,
    Capricious are those who insipidly wither,
    Porous are those who candidly fulminate,
    Superfluous are those who unnecessarily flaunt,
    Outrageous are those who traumatically condemn,
    Ignominious are those who unrelentingly abuse,
    Courageous are those who unflinchingly confront,
    Audacious are those who intrepidly adventure,
    Salacious are those who sleazily ostracize,
    Sanctimonious are those who ostentatiously purify,
    Delicious are those who harmoniously synthesize,
    Deleterious are those who perniciously destroy,
    Ominous are those who abhorrently envy,
    Perilous are those who precariously slither,
    Ostentatious are those who invidiously epitomize,
    Pretentious are those who treacherously plot,
    Vociferous are those who discordantly chatter,
    Tumultuous are those who poignantly embark,
    Dubious are those who ingloriously ruminate,
    Ambiguous are those who inexplicably vacillate,
    And precious are those who symbiotically exist….
