Wordbirds, 63

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

kinkle noun
a little kink

She had a kinkle in her calf—
She rubbed a little; it got worse—
In fact, it hurt much more, by half.
She had some money in her purse,

So off she went to see the doc,
Who told her what this was about.
“Just lower, please, your longish sock,
And I will rub the kinkle out.”

And so he did—it felt so good!
She sang a very grateful tune.
She caught him in a loving mood—
And they’ll be married—first of June.
