(istic?)

It's not idealistic
To be anachronistic
If you're not humanistic
And not fatalistic...but

Being Capitalistic
And not Socialistic
An Imperialistic
Could be jingoistic

Now I'm not a mystic
but more synergistic
I'm not a linguistic
But simply heuristic

..... Alright ......

I'll stop now - this canard
25 cent words cost more by the yard
And this cost is hard for its not avant-garde
To pay out of my mind for my mind is just lard
When I use the lard in my brain pan to fry
I cannot fry till the words I first buy
I'm short on lard so why even try

...... so .......

My lard is hard
So I cannot fry
And I cannot say
Until first I pay
So I'll fry my lard
Some other day

And that's optimistic
If not unrealistic
Bric-a Brac

Death will be your final victory over life
Rejoice, for victory comes even as you live
Spread your arms and embrace the future
