Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 5034
sconce, quisling, booboisie, scabrous

We were lying silently behind the last line of defense, a sconce outside the walls of our beloved citadel, the Great City Library, and each of us had made his pledge that he would sacrifice his life rather than allow the ranged forces of the booboisie to take it over and turn it into a shopping mall, fast food court, and multi-screen cinema but our last stand became scabrous and untenable when a lowly quisling among us, a bona fide Benedict Arnold of our time, sold a map of our fortification to the enemy and we were outflanked by a few dozen ultra obese invaders storming the library in their oversized SUVs.
