Trendy Words Eclipsed Eloquence in 2017

Rob Kyff on

This past year's language was a fright!

We traded barbs from left and right.

Insults, jeers and accusations,

Eloquence was on vacation.

Media buzzwords sang like Latifah:

"Narrative," "pivot," "alt-right," "antifa."


Widespread "harassment" by men with great power:

Weinstein and Franken and even Matt Lauer.

"Russian hackers," malevolent "trolls,"

"Collusion," "complicit" were all on a roll.
