I decided to rewrite the poem Sesquipadalianism by Lostcerbellum in simple words. It's probably got a mistake in every line.

Obsequious, a fancy word, isn't used much and so
Then when it is, it's probably to show off what you know.

A copyist using many words, and awful understanding
Strives to put the point across through talking- it's quite maddening.

To express oneself when using speech, especially, as an adult
Doesn't seem to match up to writing at the end result.

Our language is a tool- intended, surely, to be used,
But not to make the reader feel baffled and confused.

Continual repetition with, again, too many words
Suggests false knowledge and also keeps you sounding like a nerd.


Don’t babble on continuously- with 20 words or less
Explain your point with clearness, and save yourself some stress.
