At Great Length

The Prompt: Brevity Pulls—“I would have written a shorter letter, but I did not have the time.” — Blaise Pascal. Where do you fall on the brevity/verbosity spectrum?

At Great Length

In sonnets, free verse, story, song—
I fear that I go on too long.
I flunked at law school, to my mother’s grief.
I could not seem to write a brief!

Hmm.  9:29 and we are still unable to post on the WordPress Daily Prompt site.  So, I fear my post needs to be expanded.  So much for brevity:

Our contact delayed yesterday
seems delayed once again today,
for now that I have penned a rhyme
that doesn’t take much of your time,
it seems the hyperlink won’t work
so here in limbo we all lurk!

“Delayed Contact” was the theme
for yesterday, but still they seem
stuck in it. We’ve cussed and prayed,
but still our contact is delayed!
Wordpress, please come out to play.
It seems you’re stuck in yesterday!!
