Mercantile

What do you mean?

I have heard the word

And maybe I knew it once

But not now

 

So I look it up on my phone

Magic?

Science!

There it is!

 

Adj.

of or relating to trade or commerce

Noun

a general store.

 

Look!

It’s dying

Right before my eyes

Left behind on my screen

Left behind in the 1920s

 

I shall miss you mercantile

You are such a nice word

That is trending down

The question answered, the fading of manufacturing as a point well made. The poet steps inside the ill or the well or the great or the mediocre and sings. Nice song. - Nice orchestration - Stella -
