by Y. M. Roger

As ‘peterman’ seemed sexist,

the female safe-cracker left a note:

'This safe cleaned by Lady Lock'

Writing Prompt
And now, just in time for the end of the school year, it's the OBSCURE WORD 7-9-7! Write a 7-9-7 poem that highlights, introduces, or just plain uses an OBSCURE word** in the English language! ;) :) There's no topic limitation except to say that you are to try to choose a little-known word that we all might like to use one, it's your job to impress us into doing so! :) :) Make us laugh! Make us cry! But make us want to vote for (and, perhaps, utilize!) yours in one of our future offerings (prose or poetry)!

**BE SURE to include a definition of your word in your author notes! :) :)

A 7-9-7 is written such that:

first line is seven syllables
second line is nine syllables
third line is seven syllables

Peterman - person who breaks open and robs safes; a safe-cracker.
