By accident I saw a note
Which had a word I'd never seen.
"Biaccidentally," she wrote.
It caught my eye; what did it mean?
A combination, it appeared
Of two expressions, I could tell -
"By accident" and what I feared
Was "accidentally" as well.
A clever hybrid, two words joined,
Creating something new and fresh.
However, not all words get coined
For they'd be better not to mesh.
