Vernacular

Peter's pondering

This is in response to Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #263 where the given word is VERNACULAR and the word count is 90.

§

Very few people will be able to define this word.

Everyone may think they know what it means but

Really, when it comes to the crunch, if asked to explain,

Nearly all will fail miserably. I really believe that is true.

Anyone who waffles as I am doing, stalling for time,

Clearly neither knows, nor, if truth be told,

Understands, that it can refer both to

Language and to architecture

And talks of language spoken by ordinary people and, when

Referring to architecture, is concerned with domestic and functional buildings.
