Will smile, with effervescent pizzazz

My murky pool received
Shock treatment through
Your clear words -
three drops of unblemished encouragement;
Half a cup of unobstructed tenacity;
Two handfuls of unencumbered bravery,
Stirred into my chaotic brew of dirty dross,
Rescuing me from my cloudy slavery
Your words, unchaining me
And in an instant,
All which remained in me -
After the mesmerising mist lifted,
Was diamond like clarity.
May I reciprocate?
I offer you a coffee flask full
Of luminous sunshine
Which may not completely
Compensate
For your
Seasonal affective disorder,
But at least I can share your melancholy
For a brief moment
And you, knowing, that I do,
Will smile, with effervescent pizzazz
Until the day we share again, in glorious sunshine,
A glass of your favourite Shiraz.

What vanity is to one man is marketing to another.

I can't help my self-promotion. I studied marketing at Columbia University and did my grad studies at the New York School of Hard Knocks. I am cursed with a competitive edge. I believe I have a unique voice that deserves the attention it gets ~ like 11.4 million pageviews on HP.
To all my haters, please permit me to quote my buddy Cartman:
Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah! Take your bitching about my 'vanity', fold it five ways and put it where the moon don't shine, bitches.

Thank y'all for reading me. I promise to keep giving you a good reason.
As as reward I will share with you my absolute favorite marketing joke ever (I don'r know who wrote it, but I want to buy him a dozen Krispy Kremes for coming up with it):

Two beggars are sitting side by side on a street in Rome. One has a cross in front of him. The other one the Star of David. Many people go by and look at both beggars, but only put money into the hat of the beggar sitting behind the cross. A priest comes by, stops and watches throngs of people giving money to the beggar behind the cross, but none give to the beggar behind the Star of David.

Finally, the priest goes over to the beggar behind the Star of David and says: "My poor fellow, don't you understand? This is a Catholic country. People aren't going to give you money if you sit there with a 'Star of David' in front of you, especially when you're sitting beside a beggar who has a cross. In fact, they would probably give to him just out of spite."

The beggar behind the 'Star of David' listened to the priest, turned to the other beggar with the cross and said: "Moishe, look who's trying to teach the Goldstein brothers about marketing."

I write with the power of a hurricane;
my words fall as prolific as rain.
I am a force of nature.

I am a poet.

My reclusive muse,  realized her fault,
seeing me unkempt and miserable, remorsefully, she melts:
" kept you desolate, my love, it hurts my heart,
you have been sincere, it's my fault"
she kisses with pizzazz, filling me with blazing fire.

her pizzazz on the stage cannot be beat
she was the sassy dame of Big Spender
in a glittering gown she looks so neat

dynamic moves she would oft tender  
verve goes into her one woman show
she was the sassy dame of Big Spender

with mic on stand she really glows
Bond Movie themes made her a star
verve goes into her one woman show

other cabaret act aren't of her par
Diamonds Are Forever so well known
Bond Movie themes made her a star

a Welsh lass with fab sounding tones
around the world her tunes are often spun
Diamonds Are Forever so well known

her fans think she is number one
around the world her tunes are often spun
her pizzazz on stage cannot be beat
in a glittering gown she looks so neat

with pizzazz

eyes watching
but nobody stares
double takes
as you walk by

this body is flawless...

not really,
but that's the way
you gotta feel

I remain poised
hips tilted
angle of the axis
smile slight
but revealing
eyes dazzle
with pizzazz
untainted by
your sense of direction
catch the eyes
and send shivers
down your spine

her pizzazz on stage cannot be beat
she is the dame of the song Big Spender
in a glittering gown she looked neat

dynamic moves she'd often tender
verve goes into her one woman show
she is the dame of the song Big Spender

with mic on stand she really glows
Bond Movie themes made her a star
verve goes into her one woman show

other cabaret acts are not of her par
Diamonds Are Forever so well known
Bond Movie themes made her a star

a Welsh girl with fab sounding tones
on record players her tunes are spun
Diamonds Are Forever so well known

her fans think she is number one
on record players her tunes are spun
her pizzazz on stage cannot be beat
in a glittering gown she looked neat

With elegance and pure pizzazz.

She strode the stage in swathes of silk
That swished in synchronicity
To the drum beat,
As in the heat
Her voice oozed electricity.
It coursed the room
With her perfume
In concert with those sultry tones,
Deep in the groove,
So velvet smooth
Like chocolate o'er the microphone.
All eyes were fixed
Upon that mix
Of swinging hips
And painted lips,
Her clientele a lust fuelled fire,
All whetted mouths and dark desire.
Yet in the midst of all those cheers,
The wolf whistles and sexist jeers,
She played her set of old school jazz
With elegance and pure pizzazz.

who wore Ginsberg’s skirt with less  pizzazz

In the burning right hand of the bald city,
denizens frame calories and count instagram blessings
while beacons of hope refund inspiration in USADA pee cups.

Abyssinian maids wail over yesterday lovers
who wore Ginsberg’s skirt with less  pizzazz
and watched bedbugs suck blood off knee caps
wondering, what if Jesus Christ drove a Nissan?

As bullets of paragraphs fall Vietnamese pesticides on my head,
The dusts off my breath sing homilies
With letters of broken leather whiskey,
For even in the most dishonest jest,
clandestine toothbrushes are overrated
and every first false lie is the only truth.

I am the generation of the now
One liners and snippets of motivational text
The rocket fuel to propel minds into the unknown
With direction serving as an irrelevant afterthought;
Charge full on into the unknown with passion and guns blazing
The formula of operations:
Speak loudly and carry a big stick
=
Scream over and bludgeon opposing views.
Flash and pizzazz the filling substitutes for longevity and wisdom
Trumpet yourself and everyone will take notice
--a catchy jingle and an outrageous stunt
What can be better than being a whore to advertising?
I want the world, I want it now
Better yet make it yesterday, last week, last year
Nothing will satisfy but everything with a little more on top.
Generation flash has the answers
Printed on neon t-shirts selling for twenty five bucks
Did you get yours yet?
