Quandary Resolution 226
convoke, idiomatic, flyting, perseverate
"I say, I say, I say," quoth Sid, / "I grant that I agreed to convoke / this evening's free-verse fulsome flyting / with prospect of a right old barney; / but if the toe-rags on my left / are minded to perseverate / with such slackly incontinent if / (I'll allow) idiomatic tautology / I shall have no option but to revoke / --- to pull the plug and wrap it up."
