BELITTLE BEND

I'm loath to belittle your driving,
But you went rather fast when arriving.
When you drove round that bend,
My hair stood on end
Slow down if you want to keep thriving.

In matters most maudlin he'd meddle,
He'd love to go stir up the kettle.
When hearing of trouble,
He comes on the double
To offer his own ills for peddle.

Don't wonder, in cool montane climes,
If you'd better grow lemons or limes;
The question is moot,
For those kinds of fruit
Won't thrive (it's been tried many times).

There is much in the world that is glorious,
Like the music of Michael Praetorius.
There is poetry gnomic,
There's the River Potomac,
And of course there is Groucho uproarious!

The bamboozler is much to the fore
In business, in sport, and in war.
He can feint with the ball,
Or make his foes stall
As he gets them to storm the wrong shore.

Her stance was illogical,
Under the moon, more magical.
The darkness imbued
What the story construed.
Yes! She is ideological.

Pragmatic - ?

Would someone, please, find the proper word to pair with pragmatic?

PRAGMATIC - PRECINCT

The precinct cops came to my attic
They freed me with drawn automatic
"Don't care how you got there
As long as your not there!"
That's what I call being pragmatic.

CARIBOU - CAUTION


FWIW Department - the two words are nominally from any handy dictionary or equivalent, chosen by opening to a random page and taking the Index first and last words from the top. (I suspect if you chose any two reasonably-close-together words at random, no one would notice or question your source...that also is being pragmatic.)


And -- nice to see your keystrokes again.

You shouldn't eat raw caribou,
'cause its nutritive benefits? Few.
You'd have to use caution,
Or you'd end up washin'
Your clothing of vile, hairy spew.

COMBUSTION COMMERCE

Okay, horrid verse, but after 35 years living in the environs, this summer I finally saw caribou in the Kenai River flats.
