Frivolity

Curse the frivolity
of the word “frivolity”
frivolous to its core
not sharing the deep seriousness
of the word “serious”
or the condescension
of “condescending”

So frivolous a word
as “frivolity”
is not fit for polite society
and is nearly as rude
as the word “rudeness”
and as embarrassing
as the word “embarrassment”

O frivolity
so lacking in the gravitas
of “gravitas”
I fear you will never
cast your frivolous roots aside
and become as solemn
as “solemnity”
