Wordbirds, 41

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

lyssa noun [LIS-uh]
rabies, hydrophobia

His mouth was foamingeyes were red—
His mind was gone—he didn’t care.
The final words his neighbor said?
“Have you seen Cujo anywhere?”
