Ribald, to rhyme with nibbled, or ribald?
Pronounce it wrong, scholars will be appalled!
Dearth rhymes, it would seem, with earth,
and not, as I thought, with hearth.
When young, I flubbed it, publicly,
and felt a dearth of mirth.
CONsummate or conSUMMate? Who can say?
Webster's decides it! Either-eyether way.
