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!
