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.
of or relating to wasps
His vespal fears were so profound
He chose to dwell far underground—
A cavern he had freshly found.
And there he lived for many years—
And slowly all those vespal fears
Retreated—as did all his peers,
Who thought him just a little weird—
A cavern life for what he feared?
(And then there was that knee-length beard!)
Forgetting why he had moved there,
He took a trip up to the air,
Where wasps were waiting, and I swear
They stung that dude until he died.
I found a moral (cuz I tried):
If you fear wasps, don’t go outside!
