Adverb Adversaries

C. Neuroticus Absolutus

Scribes and scribblers
Paragraph nibblers
Went out for a working lunch.
They parsed and deleted
And finally succeeded:
Not an adverb
Escaped the bunch.

Throughout the land
They had adverbs banned
From sea to shining sea.
When they took to their beds
And had their last rites said,
They left this world
