A Woman's Way With Words

...or do I mean her "wayward words"?

In any case, coming from a study of Office Hymns, reflecting on the lyrics of the contents of a modern "hymnal":
"Instead of honeyed phrases they give us high fructose corn syrup!"
(Mind you, I am in no position to throw such stones, my tastes are so puerile that blank verse hymns irk me. Nonetheless, a martyr to the marketing success of Archer Daniels Minions, I can appreciate another's denigration of corn syrup. Not to mention of bad hymns.)
