Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 7477
wen, fossick, abrogate, yellow jack, n.1
It started as a tiny wen
Became a contagion fast;
The crew of invalids were penned,
The yellow_jack flew on the mast;
They fossicked for a certain cure
But none was to be found.
They had to abrogate their rules
And run the ship aground.
