Poet's Notes

I set the word generator to bring up a single word

to base a limerick around. It came back with 'syndactylism.' ( Gulp.)

There was a young man caught up in activism
Who had a bad case of syndactylism
When he voted he held up five digits
Others cried  out it is litigious 
And antidisestablishmentarianism.

Well I just learned two new words today (three if you count that crazy one in the end). Lol! This was a lot of fun, and super creative --- I only wish I could actually pronounce what it is I'm reading!

wow, well that is a mouth full! What a great way to be inspired though, might have to give that a try. I hope they give the definition when they dish out a word. Bravo on your limerick
