Encyclopedia, or: Dictionary

A more than slightly crazy dabbler,
Hair mussed, bedabbled clothes:
   “I am suffering from andabatism!
   So I must call someone who knows!”

He hastily phoned the dabster:
   “I've heard you’re one of the pros!
   Of the dabb; dabchick; daboia-
   Which has the strongest nose?”

The above poem is my take on d’Verse’s Quadrille challenge #119.

The quadrille is simply a poem of 44 words (excluding the title), and it can take any form. This week’s challenge was to use any form of the word “dab” in a quadrille.

  1. You’ve deftly dabbled in some dictionary words here! You had me reaching for mine at the word ‘andabatism’ – a fun and educational take on the prompt!
