Conniption……A fit of anger or panic

I came across a new word
so I thought of sharing it
no not out of ignorance
perhaps twas my share only
yet it’s a new word
we can all now see
all in one word
call it
will ye…

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


I think this word deserves a test of use
so that it sinks into our daily way of abuse
I shall compile a piece for its use you see
Tempering it with some of my thoughts so free..

LOL I will do it later as the sun rests its rays,
Yours Ian.T (Today)

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

The best time of life in any ones day
is night
we dream
we scream
we do
we woo
we slumber
and count the number
how to do
and poetry comes to me
as well as you
as night comes after a day
we all know and knew...

Many thanks for sharing it again.

The world leaders are a bunch of connipted fools. Or - Mr Cameroon makes conniptic statements. This is a great word to play around with. He he I like it. It rolls off the tongue nicely and I like the sound.

Great poem!
