Quivel Me This

"Hunting Blind"

Quivel is the term coined by Dr. John for the poetry based on Quilly's Three Word Thursday words.

Here is my one and only ever attempt because now my headache is worse after this mess.

Quivel Most Evil

Jhonas spelled his name with a digraph
which he explained in a long paragraph
in a journaled anopisthograph.

His decided apanthropinization
allowed for lengthy reflection,
mental and spiritual organization.

The choice of aloneness was not a mystery
Based on reasoning most paultry
And the use of much casuistry.

With a father who was tyrannical
And a mother who was autocratical
He had too much experience with the cynicocratical.

So he behaved quite raucous
And caused a huge fracas
When he his teacher did percuss.

The scene was very horrendous
The injury he inflicted very hideous
The screams and crying very hitonious.

He was sent where they practiced the Angelus
Hoping he would become more isangelous
Instead he ended up just isagelous.

Trying to be harmonious
He spoke and acted mellifluous
Being sort of symphonious.

He hung out with fanatics
That searched for relics
Priced by hungry numismatics.

Their comments about him were contumelious
Their thoughts of him scurrilous
Their behavior and treatment opprobrious.

Their scorn affected him plenty
So much so that he felt empty
His list of friends showing a definite paucity.

For once in his life he was perspicacious
When normally he was not sagacious
This once his thinking efficacious.

Deciding to scram
From an upsetting engram
His existence would become quondam.

Beyond a mere sternutation
Or even a simple evacuation
This called for complete detonation

With a past teterrimous
A present most malodorous
And a future looking poisonous

He did not want to be just another ant
He was tired of being volgivagant
And part of the proletariat

So gathering his cither
Packing up his zither
Off he did slither

To become some sort of satirist,
A critical, carping caricaturist
And spoiling, soiling, zoilist.
