Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 7472
elutriate, abstemious, proficient, zooid, n.
They discovered a self-aware zooid,
Proficient enough to blink,
But in trying to elutriate it
They lost it down the sink.
This wasn't a total disaster
The scientist - given to drink -
By consequence became abstemious
So a Pyrrhic victory, I think!
