Question and answer

All quiet: no whines,
no rants, no eye-glazing screeds;
Was I unsubscribed?

I replied:

No, not at all, Sir.

Ah, my dear ex-Lord
Of Instrumentality:
Beautifully put.

Casual or formal speech,
Which style should one use?)

Ho there, Arthaey!
Do in such matters of form
What to you seems best.
