Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 4848
parnassian, cloudburst, filial, pasquinade

O Captain, my Captain, the halcyon days of parnassian expression are done; what once lit the heart and mind with crafted words is now replaced with cloudbursts of blog and tweet; posted obloquy supplanting pasquinade, an ideographic heart standing stead for a sonnet, satire—a vicious video; would Shakespeare or Swift disown the filial connections to their work; surely Swift would have a modest proposal for these offspring.
