Juno sings her blessings on you...
Scarcity and want shall shun you,
Ceres' blessing so is on you.
That last line might sound like a modern teenager: he is so on you you would not believe... but it's actually Shakespeare's The Tempest. A man ahead of his time, and also a man not to shun epistrophe.
So: do you know what epistrophe is, yet?
Epistrophe is when you finish a series of phrases with the same word. I am great, you are great, and together we will make America great. That sort of thing.
Epistrophe is easy to use, has been around for millennia (when I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child... wrote St Paul) and can be very effective.
Even monkeys use it:

So, as I try to be pithy, hope to be pithy, and wish to appear pithy, I think today I might give epistrophe a go...
...and stop writing.
Thing To Use Today: epistophe. This word is Greek. Epi can mean more or less anything you want it to mean, and strophē means a turning.
