The college paid time and a half
For a lazy researcher on staff
He'd slurp on a noodle
While petting his poodle
As they awaited a new nomograph

Since stumble-bum Ernest McNorb
Had so many rules to absorb,
His first try at football
Outside our Cheroot Hall
Saw his chin strap meet up with a forb.

During dinner he spouted our doom
A future of bleakness and gloom.
After dining in drama,
That bordered on trauma
I escaped to my quaint drawing room.

In spite of the proud Lord's defense
He was expelled from his manse
An old manuscript said
't Was not his to be had
And the bailiff he meant no offense.

Tom was a gourmet and a jester,
And he feted a girl just to test her.
With great timing judicious
She washed all the dishes:
His cooking, it seems, had impressed her!

(Good work on those last two, guys)

There once was a vet, Doctor Morse,
Who coerced a last will from a horse.
Being encyclopedic
'Bout things orthopedic
Morse forced the old horse to endorse.

POLYPLOID - POMPOUS

I had one for encyclopedic and endorse..I just had to work all weekend...

He will tell you who you should endorse.
He will tell you the myths of Old Norse.
He's encyclopedic,
and often comedic...
He claims to be trained in "the Force."

Moving on....

In the past I have often enjoyed
Rhyming word that others avoid.
I try not to be pompous-
It can be quite arduous,
But I can't seem to use polyploid!

Good one! (I love this stuff...)

On his face they are tiny and pale
But grow large on the tip of his tail.
(and we're not talking hair, man,
for this guy's a merman!)
The remainder are, well, mesoscale.

ECHELON - ECONOMIZE

While sitting in a chic salon
Among the upper echelon
I learned - to no surprise-
They can not economize,
and they're shock when they are overdrawn.

NODUS - NOMOLOGICAL

We met with a deadbeat named Otis
And demanded the money he owed us.
His mien seemed to thaw,
Then he quoted the law:
An odd nomological nodus.

LAYERAGE - LEAD

(And I note with some levity that I am now a "member," a point my wife makes periodically, using various synonyms)
