Wordbirds, 35

We’ve commenced our journey backward through Webster’s 3rd. I’m picking a word near the end of each entry for each letter—a word that interests me for some reason or a word I’d not ever known before—and surrounding it with a frayed coat of doggerel.

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

rutty adj.

So rutty Roger had a plan—
A way to conquer womankind:
He’d figure out a way to ban
The way that women value mind.

But Roger’s plan went up in smoke—
It really had no chance to work.
For rutty Roger was a joke—
And also something of a jerk.

So Roger had no rutting—no,
Not any rutting in his life.
He failed with women (don’t you know?)
And failed to find a willing wife.
