Wordbirds, 21

This new series—“Wordbirds”—arises from a journey I am taking through my Webster’s 3rd Dictionary. What I’m doing: I look on the first page for each letter, and the first word that flies up at me (because I don’t know it, because I just think it’s interesting, etc.) becomes the subject for that day’s doggerel. I will move through letter z, then work my way back again, the second time using the last page of each letter’s section of Webster's. Let’s see what happens ...

Words that flew into my life from Webster’s 3rd

uang noun
rhinocerous beetle

This is some weird news to disclose:
She found a uang parked in her nose.
I guess it really kind of shows
A beetle almost always goes
Just where it wants to go. (Our woes
Increase!) So … careful when you doze!
