Miss Malaprop



Miss Malaprop

A nubile young maiden, inchoately malleable
needs some instruction to stay out of trouble.
Her mother has warned against malaprop gaffes,
which in her innocence, she calls “giraffes.”
So if you are seeking to be this girl’s savior,
in adducing reasons for proper behavior,
keep your words simple and don’t try to teach
difficult words that are out of her reach!

 

Prompt words today are inchoate, malleable, nubile, adduce and gaffe. Image by Sherise on Unsplash.
