Dust off the Dictionary

I am archaic and forgotten these are my  dusty tomes
The perennial deipnosophist verbally alone

With flowing ink my guide, the page my diligent doxy
I capriciously choose my  diction and propose my proxy

A peccant periapt around thy neck, I’ll drag thee
Along the hyperborean, yet sullen, road you see

Hoarfrost coated little old me helpless and miserly
Carry on, my linguistics are aged unfortunately

The bruit is that the caducity of my tenure is
The reason for this rhyme; I digress and must stress that this

This, is but a puzzle, it is but a conundrum.
I'll let you decipher amongst the humdrum

    Aye but this humdrum is impressive and i admire the grandiloquence even the archaic flavor of it. The diction usage here does make it all the more captivating to me. Nice to read u again.

    What an intriguing write...It has left me ebullient! HA HA! Dear dear...and I thought I was good in vocab...well well...there goes that bubble. I love to take vocab tests...Reader's Digest...It Pays to Enrich Your Word Power was always fun. This has put me to SHAME! Here is where you try to work out the contest clues....and then you say...Ok...made your point...GIVE ME THAT DICTIONARY. Thanks for your very kind visit to my work. Much appreciated!
