Such an obnoxious word
Who would choose to use it by choice
When there are so many more
verbally accessible synonyms
when you can use recondite or complex or esoteric
Why go with something so hard to say
The fact that it is hard to say
Might help you remember that the word itself
Kind of means describing something that is
Hard to say
In that it is recondite or complex or esoteric.
Yet those just roll off the tongue
So much easier to inject into a sentence
With that in mind
Let’s make a truce
Let’s avoid the word abstruse.
