…break it down into its component parts, and FIX THE PARTS THAT DO NOT SCAN.

Sorry. I’m feeling much better now.

    Whoever wrote those lyrics should be bashed on the head with the Norton Anthology of Poetry (only copies prior to 1980 are acceptable because it tanked after that).

    Heh, indeed. I’m reminded of people who are offended by the term ‘polyamory’– not for what it refers to, but because of the mixing of Greek and Latin roots (alternates: multiamory, polyfidelity).

    Finrod, if it worked for meter (Horace), I reckon it oughta work for tropes! I think most words junkies are irreverent–I’d mix Farsi with Gullah in a heartbeat. ;>)
