Quandary Resolution 1884
brank, tranquil, hie, fulsome
'To be frank,' said Hank, 'I drew a blank Left Bank - right out of brank, and my heart sank; but then a bum (who stank), some slum scum (quite rank), mumbled ''Over here, chum, don't be glum, have a crumb''; so in fulsome stride I hied me to his humdrum side and damn near cried when I spied, free to take by his flank, nearly half a Russian pancake - and make no mistake, here it is, a bit dank and lank, but let's chill, all tranquil like.'
