Fridge Poetry: Jealousy

I whipped out my dictionary for this one.. Online Magnetic Poetry Genius Edition gave me the words for this one. It's short 'cuz the words were hard! I couldn't add anything else to it and make sense. There wasn't a "desires" or more "his"s or "from"s.

the festooned profligate
the pithy pariah

his nefarious solution
will enervate you
with herculean lachrymose

ingratiating character!

A rough translation for the dictionary-lacking:

the adorned prodigal/the un-elaborated lowly one
his evil solution/will bore you/ with humongous tears and sadness
flattering character!

This must be how the other brother felt when the prodigal son returned and was welcomed with a feast. I read this with disgust, spitting the words from my mouth. Blech! :P Hope you enjoy!

I must admit that I've never heard the word lachrymose before. The others were at least somewhat familiar even if I couldn't provide a dictionary definition.

Still, that's a tough batch o' words.

I heard of lachrymose in "The Series of Unfortunate Events". Lake Lachrymose in book...3 I think?? Go Lemmony Snicket for increasing the vocabulary of kids!
