Be Not Perturbed

My dear reader, please, don't be afraid
When I say stuff like discombobulate
I say big words
Because I'm a nerd
Not to label your intelligence as "up for debate"

    Even just saying the word is some how satisfying.

    You know what, it's not even on google translate, I had to search it. A really big word :DDD. A funny work, Timothy.

    Hahaha, that's funny! First time I heard it was in the Sherlock Holmes movie and I thought to myself "one day I'll use that word in a poem"... and at long last I did :)
