A Word Addicts Rhyme
With so many wonderful words out there
of remarkable rhyming quality,
like harbinger, extraordinare’,
recompense, and soliloquy,
I find it hard to make a choice
betwixt effervescent and supine.
As to which of these appease me most
when I prepare to pen a rhyme.
Suddenly I’ll hear the call,
“Why must you have to choose,
one single word from among them all,
With so many great words to use?”
Divine bovine! What a fantastic idea!
an awesomely somniferous notion!
Somewhere out there could there really be a
Way to use all and not stir a commotion?
The tempter entices “go on grab a few
From this syllabically succulent fare
Blend them together like a pot of word stew
Just make sure they are each one quite rare.”
Consequently orates my old nemesis,
this word addicts worst foe to the pen.
Oh dear, what the heck! With an addiction like this,
I can’t wait to start over again!
