I told a pretty woman
I truly admired her pulchritude.
She yelled, "You pig," and slapped me.
Ladies and Gentlemen (and all other members to whom these monikers may not apply!): it's time once again for the Obscure Word 7-9-7! Find a word that truly exists but that, for some reason or another, has been out of the mainstream -- and bring it back for us! ;) Or it can be a new one that has wormed its way into the younger vocabulary enough to be put into the Urban Dictionary!! ;) Your choice!
Your poem should be of the format:
First Line -- 7 syllables
Second Line -- 9 syllables
Third Line -- 7 syllables
It should highlight/explain/define an obscure word** for us and really make us want to use it the next time we compose an offering whether it be prose or poetry! :) Remember, keep it mostly clean (know that's difficult for some of you out there, but it IS only 23 syllables so I'm sure you can manage it!) and impress us! :-) :-)
BE SURE to include a COMPLETE definition of your obscure word** in your author notes. Make it fun, make it intriguing, but, most of all, make us want to vote for yours!! LET THE OBSCURITY BEGIN!! :)
**Due to their over-appearance in previous contests, the following words are hereby OFF-LIMITS:
Pulchritude: Beauty. Physical attractiveness.
