Franklin P. Adams

Here you will find the Poem Vain Words of poet Franklin P. Adams

Vain Words

Humble, surely, mine ambition; 
It is merely to construct 
Some occasion or condition 
When I may say "usufruct."

Ernest am I and assiduous; 
Yet I'm certain that I shan't amount 
To a lot till I use "viduous," 
"Indiscerptible," and "tantamount."
