    I know a little man both ept and ert.
    An intro–? an extro–? No, he’s just a vert.
    Shevelled and couth and kempt, pecunious, ane,
    Gus unage trudes upon the ceptive brain.

    When life turns sipid and the mind is traught,
    The spirit soars as I would sist it ought.
    Chalantly then, like any gainly goof
    My digent self is sertive, choate, loof.

    –David McCord (1897 – 1997)
