Wordbirds, 74

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.

Univocal [yoo-NIH-vuh-kul]
Adj. Unmistakable in meaning
Noun: a word or term having but one meaning

That insult you just hurled at me?
Its meaning is univocal
And hurts in ways you cannot see.

And now my heart is very full
Of plots for ways to pay you back—
And some involve a raging bull,

A bull that I’ve trained to attack—
A bull that’s large and mean and black.
The last thing you will know? A WHACK!

And as you're flying—head and heels
And crying your pathetic squeals
At last you'll know just how it feels!
