The Acronym

A fear and a hatred
A compulsion not a whim
A revulsion never sated
The dreaded acronym

Travelling under guises
Initialisms, abbreviations 
Of text, it quantises 
Deadly prosaic deviations

Letters raised on high
Language’s lazy trick
I shriek and call out “why!”
Feeling physically sick

Jargon’s Trojan horse
Lurking in parenthesis
Then applied with force
It is my nemesis

Ruining the skyline
Meaning then forgot
Deemed to be benign
But actual mental rot
