I promised the poem I wrote re: Pithy. Here it goes!!!!!!!
He said, “It is a pithy one.”
My friend, the teacher poet.
I just write down what comes to mind.
I said, “I didn’t know it.”
I looked up pithy in the book
I read with consternation.
What definition should I believe.
I thought with reservation.
Pith had several explanations
I read with cautious awe.
Spongy tissue, central strand
To destroy the spinal cord, I saw.
Then I breathed a relieved sigh
What one should I anoint
But the pithy definition
“Having substance and a point.”
–Richard L. Brewer
