Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 7017
stenophagous, broadcast, euphony, softback
I had a stenophagous bird
That only digested tough words
He baulked at the plain,
Would abhor and abstain,
And broadcast his scorn 'til I heard.
 
His screeches were death to all euphony
Until I would feed him more suitably
But a softback by chance
Made him fall in a trance
With its simpleton's diet, presumably.
 
I roused him with speeches stentorious;
I plied him with words meritorious;
But all he denied,
And eventually died
From a diet so strange and censorious.
