Thanks for your input. Although I must say I would be more inclined to give your little "critique" more serious consideration had it not been delivered in such a diminutive, conceited, and unnecessarily self-righteous tone. Especially when what it seems to infer is that, when it comes to poetry, using bigger words and having perfect rhymes at the end of each line is more important than the message. Ostensibly, you're correct. Obviously the greats like Emerson, Elliot, Dickinson, Tolstoy, Bly, Frost, Machado, Vallejo, Whitman, Browning, and Longfellow always made sure that they completely disregarded clarity and simplicity -opting instead for being superficially "deep" by using the biggest words they possibly could- and always made to sure focus on the words rhyming and the lines looking pretty, rather than the thematic principle they were trying to deliver. Clearly [i]I'm[/i] completely missing the point. /sarcasm.
and, ooooooh Nietzche, nice name-drop. Did you hear that in your philosophy 101 class, taught by professor stiff-balls-swaddled-in-tweed you try-hard unlikable suck-hole? I personally like the German philosophers like Friedrick, and Kant, and Shopenhauer as much as any philosophy buff, but they are a bit stale and they certainly titillate themselves with the laughable notion of being "learned." They're more for shallow douches who want to pretend that they're geniuses- above us mere mortals with our pathetic, minuscule, pithy vocabularies- without so much as a single innovative spark to corroborate such a grandiose claim. So, I prefer the French philosophers like Montaigne, Voltaire, Descartes, and Sartre- they didn't hate themselves because the weight of the world was too much, like Nietzche did. At least not so much as because they couldn't stand the unwarranted presumption and pretense of the human garbage which once littered the aristocracy, and peasantry and all circles of humanity, and which now has a glowing glorious shrine commemorated to it on the internet; built by neck-beards like you, out of snark- that peeved little cousin which could never quite amount to true wit- with nothing better to do than be reductive towards people whom [i]actually[/i] attempt to hone their respective talents out of spite because they have none. So I'll expand my vocab, just as soon as you expand your lips around a gun barrel, and advance the collective intellect of the gene pool by removing yourself from it.
and now, just to be a d**k, here's a list of vocab words which I've been writing sentences of to do exactly as you said and expand my vocab.
