Won't Stand on Ceremony

Question

Posted · Report post

At first I might seem crazy

As a result of the cancellation

Or perhaps I am just spoiled yet

Would kill for an explanation

Though what is the point, afterall

We're finished, it's over, through

I guess one could take either side

Is all that was left to conclude

But then adding insult to injury

Resentment and outrage ensues

Those vows, put off, now mocking

Because of the scandalous news

Another of your 2-parters? I came up with

OFFEND

At first I might seem crazy...........

As a result of the cancellation........all can be OFF

Or perhaps I am just spoiled yet......

Would kill for an explanation

Though what is the point, afterall......

We're finished, it's over, through......... all can be an END

I guess one could take either side.........

Is all that was left to conclude........

But then adding insult to injury

Resentment and outrage ensues

Those vows, put off, now mocking

Sorry all for the lack of response. That work thing. fabpig is spot on.

At first I might seem crazy - off as in disturbed, addled, crazy

As a result of the cancellation - another definition of off

Or perhaps I am just spoiled yet - off as in turned, rancid, spoiled

Would kill for an explanation - off as in murder or kill

Though what is the point, afterall - end as in point, tip or as in goal, objective and afterall is the end

We're finished, it's over, through - three more ends

I guess one could take either side - end as in each extremity or side

Is all that was left to conclude - two more ends

But then adding insult to injury - adding off + end so offend and insult to injury/offend

Resentment and outrage ensues - what happens when you offend

Those vows, put off, now mocking - put off can mean offend and possibly as teasing assertions

Because of the scandalous news - scandalize can be synonomous with offend

Admit I may have overworked some of this one especially the second to last line. But did not want to make it too easy to work backwards from the answer to the two halves.

Well done fabpig.
