The officer's voice sounded gruff:
"A soldier needs ears that are tough.
For a Guardsman to stifle
The noise of his rifle
Is quite frankly not good enough."

You have beaten me to it, AC: I was about to post the following

“It is certainly more than enough”
Said the Senior Billy Goat Grough
“That this bridge-guardsman Troll
Asks from us as a Toll!
His demands are excessively tough!”

So.
I must essay another tack

As the Goat crossed the stream on the gantry,
Said the Troll said, “You will do for my pantry!
Come into my garden!”
Said the Goat, “Beg yer pardon!
I’ll not come any place where you can try!”

TEMPERANCE - TENACIOUS

Carrie Nation chopped up a bar with her little hatchet
Carrie Nation was not cool unlike the nice Nurse Ratchet
Big Carrie was seldom gracious
Her temperance being tenacious
Drop that drink -I hear her I think- chopping in her casket

A hard-bitten Temperance Queen,
C.A.Nation was oft to be seen,
A harbinger of woe
To the hard-drinking Joe
On whom she would vent her vile spleen!!

Retired politicians' capacity
For bending the truth shows audacity;
They garnish their stories
With fictional glories –
We gasp at their lack of veracity.

THERMODYNAMIC – THESIS

The stuff of this world is semantical, to wit;
Science is made of anomalies re-arranged to fit
Yesterday's thermodynamics
Are today's quantum mechanics
That's my thesis and I'm sticking to it.

In the Roman Fertility Chase,
Athletes of both sexes could race.
But the girls seldom won,
For few dared to run
At more than their chaperone's pace.

In the Home Base Settings however
The girls felt free to endeavor
Fierce tirades that stuck
And left the men dumbstruck
As the athletes were strong but not clever.

Girls are gracile when they walk with voices high and sweet
Men have big heads and when they walk they walk on clumsy feet
Hear this saying honed and homespun
The math of sex is one plus one is one
Which sex is smartest let me think...men -in a heartbeat wink

The other word was "duel". Can you work that in?
