Party Crasher Cliche

the thing is, a thing becomes
a cliche cos it contains some grain
of truth with irritates the
human until they seek some relief
in the briefest of quotations,
anon but not alone.

    Oh, and is ‘Pardon my French?’ a cliche because it sure is annoying enough to be one. Swear with abandon, I say. No apologies necessary.
