Wordbirds, 56

AT LAST—We’ve now commenced our third—and final—journey through Webster’s 3rd. This time, I’m picking a word near the middle 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 …

dimerous adj. [DIM-ur-us]
consisting of or divided into two parts

He drew his sword against the king—
The king just laughed, then loudly swore:
“Oh, you’re forgetting everything!
You will regret this to your core!”

They touched their blades—bright edges flashed—
The Royal court was in a fuss.
And when it ended, hopes were dashed:
The king, all saw, was dimorous.
