hooverize, philematology, frolic, acrolith, n.
Oh happy are the nymphs at play
Who gambol and frolic all the day
Around their acrolith so fine
And laud their Valentines sublime.
They study philematology
And hooverize dull company.

adonize, Anthropocene, adust, godwottery, n.
She said she was an expert landscape worker;
She said that she would adonize the scene;
I ended up with adust desolation
Like the worst example of Anthropocene.
And when she'd done refurbishing the rest
T'was prissy stale godwottery at best.

jackleg, agonic, recuse, misway, n.
And because you are a jackleg
As day by day we're told
Recuse yourself from everything
That readers could behold
You're agonic, without anything
That makes a perfect square
A misway of humanity
And none of us could care.

jackleg, echelon, instauration, irie, adj. (and adv.) and int.
A jackleg of a worker
In the echelons of power,
Avoiding all disruption,
Living in his ivory tower -
He survived the instauration
Of his company, when it crashed,
It's irie, well and good, he said
When his bonus cheque was cashed.

jackleg, live paycheck to paycheck, mnemonic, cheeselog, n.
A jackleg of a tutor
Taught my girls last year
He taught them a mnemonic
For the ten months of the year
No better than a cheeselog,
He lost his job, and then
He lived paycheck to paycheck
For a twelvemonth (or just ten?)

wirepuller, wordster, carp, quomodocunquizing, adj.
Don't carp, I said, it's not my métier
A wordster I may be, but not for gain
I'm not a quomodocunquizing gal or guy
Who begs for money without feeling shame
I'm but a wirepuller working from above
Seeking to push the plan, but out of love

snollygoster, shoot one's cuffs, spavined, desh, n.
His desh was somewhere far away
And even he'd forgotten
So spavined was that poor old man
Whose teeth (and mind) were rotten
A snollygoster! Said my mate
And shot his cuffs to show his hate.

tautologous, dabble, blench, chaogenous, adj.
A dark and brooding sky tonight
It's chaogenous, void of light,
And every tautologous pun
That I can dabble in, but one:
I blench at saying night is black
Because - well duh - it's always that!

tautologous, coo, divest, outgrabe, v.
I'd coo and coo in praise of you
With many, much and great ado
But I'll eschew hypocrisy,
Divest me of tautology,
And leave it to an earlier sage
Who claimed the mome raths did outgrabe

emesis, ASMRtist, preternatural, pseudologer, n.
You are a base pseudologer!
I said, when I was told.
I wouldn't give a dollar for
Your lead that turns to gold.
It's just a preternatural
Conspiracy and myth
And emesis is my response
To idiocy like this.
He said I am an ASMRtist,
Not Alchemist, you fool!
I transmute people's senses
With my audio visual tools.

Deliver me from deep state woes!
That secretly irrupt, when those

But that aint nang, folks, that ain't nang!!

latitudinarian, soft-spoken, tincture, devel, v.
I know a man, soft-spoken,
And gentle to a fault;
But he suffered an assault.
A bigot develled him so hard
That he was nearly dead.
I applied a healing tincture
To his body and his head.

olid, careworn, anthropomorphic, reposado, n.
My Uncle Jack bore a careworn look
As he walked his old dog down the street.
The dog was olid and scruffy, and took
An age to rise to its feet.
But Jack had some reposado at home
That got him through most of his day.
And then he would call his dog a good friend
In an anthropomorphic display.

roland, if anything, popinjay, magnoperate, v.
Sir Toby was a popinjay,
And Roland was his jest;
Sir Toby would magnoperate,
While Roland did his best.
But Toby was, if anything,
A liar and a fraud
Who ended up a pauper
While Roland swept the board!
