It is good for you to practice
Well known, effective praxis.
It is also very practical
And seen as highly tactical.

Choose sticking to an axis
Falling back on praxis
Instead of veering on a slant,
Raging wildly in a rant.

Lexico gave us polyglot
To use again, we must not.
“It’s been done in threes!”
The arbiters we must please.
