Sound & Sense, 2-77

Time for more instances of the homophone: a word pronounced the same as another but differing in meaning, whether spelled the same way or not, as heir and air.

1. murderess (noun): a woman who murders
2. murderous (adj.): very violent or deadly; very angry; having the purpose or capability of murder

The murderess, so murderous,
Became so bloody furious
She aimed her weapon right at us.

She cried aloud, “Just shut your face!
You make me sick, you human race!
Your failures are a dark disgrace!”

“That sounded harsh,” said smiling Rand,
A cappuccino in his hand,
While looking fit and very tanned.

“Why be so rude?” a girl asked next.
Her sneer showed well that she was vexed,
Her thumbs a-flying on a text.

The murderess just chose to stare
At this, a very strange affair,
And realized: “I just don’t care.”

She dropped her weapon on the ground,
Took one last look and turned around,
Got on a plane, Hawaii-bound.
