A Fulmination on Fizgigs

A Fulmination on Fizgigs

What I go through to write blogs is absurd.
I’m desperate for topics. I search for each word.
Superior writing often evades me,
but still I am happy when someone upbraids me
to get off the bench and engage in the play
of Ragtag, Fandango or Word of the day.

Each day I search out a possible angle.
I plot and I worry, I scheme and I wangle
to make use of each prompt word, however absurd.
I will not be bettered by any strange word!
So, bring on your fizgigs and your mollynogging,
I won’t be intimidated in my own blogging!

And although some readers might be irritated
by having to look up words obscure and dated,
and though I must struggle, often in vain,

to make use of prompt words that I find inane,
still I’ll plod on, stubborn to the ending,
regardless of what crazy prompt word is pending!!!


Word prompts for today are bench, superior, happiest, fizgig and wangle.

        Not a clue. That’s why I don’t take part in that particular prompt 🙂.
        Seriously, I reckon I have an adequate vocabulary already, so I can usually find more productive things to do than to look up new words. But, you know, to each their own. I spent yesterday analysing a list of all of the meds which are approved by the FDA – which would probably make most people’s eyes glaze over!

    Good work Judy. You always amaze me. You are a fizgig for sure (the first meaning of the word lol). Thank goodness Miriam Webster says the word is archaic, since many of us didn’t know the meaning. It is a fun word to say just as you are fun.
