And what's with JJ? Dunno. I just saw this today. I've PM'ed her; hope to hear something back. It can be so easy, even in real life, to misinterpret something as a personal affront when in fact no such thing was intended. I hope that's not what happened here.

The theoretical stick,
Was incredibly quick,
It never got lost,
Or turned to compost,
Though it was undeniably thick

falciform + falsetto

(been following this for a while, hope you don't mind if i join in?)

Yes, welcome!

A basso profundo, Fritz Lang,
Was assailed with a falciform fang.
He grabbed his libretto
And read in falsetto
lines that called for much more Sturm und Drang

A broccoli, it's true did induct,
In a spate of atrocious conduct,
A carrot as head,
Of the brassica's shed,
Though it was inedible and mulct,

(bit dodgy on the end there!)

DIARCHY + DICHOTOMY

The queen found the king a bit snarky
When he questioned the need for diarchy:
"I think this dichotomy,
Which once meant a lot to me,
Is a double-dip dose of malarky."

ESCUAGE - ESSENTIAL

The lord he demanded escuage,
So the serfs began to encourage,
Each other to flee,
Not drop to one knee,
And essentially abandoned their liege.

(hmmm seem to be having issues with last lines!)

PROWESS + PSALTERY

A dad psaid, "You've always meant all to me,
Depspite all your flim-flam and faultery.
Now, tipping a cow is
A psure psign of prowess;
But perhaps you pshould take up the psaltery."

FREON - FRICTIONAL

Sneaking in: FTR, I haven't heard a peep from Ms. Double-J. Sigh.
