Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3852
redound, literati, commemorate, fantast

 

Our leader we commemorate

With bounteous feast upon the plate

 

Literati sing his praise on high

Nobel anthems fill the sky

 

Exploits bold and brave redound in glory

But this is not our leader’s story

 

His deeds are stuff of legend and lore

Tales oft repeated, and no more

 

Truth be told, no hero he

Who fought for our democracy

 

All is but a fantast’s tale

True heroes lie beyond the pale

 

Others died to make us free

To pave the way for you and me

 

To live so well in this fair land

Our lives and fortunes nicely planned

 

Until the day truth is revealed

And we must our pretenses yield

 

We all know how the story goes

A child says, “The emperor has no clothes!”
