Vocabulary Exercise 1

A bumptious person seems to have a little too much pride,
They’re really self-assertive with obnoxiousness implied.

The word defenestration, well, here’s what it’s about,
It means to throw someone or thing, through a window out.

The word discombobulated, it always makes me grin;
In fact it means the opposite – upset, confused within.

This next word’s really easier than the way it sounds,
Ubiquitous – it simply means it’s everywhere around.

This will be messy, but here we go…

There was a bumptious man who really liked to brag a lot,
So irritating, now we’re making a defenestration plot.

Reading traffic signs can make me feel discombobulated,
But since they’re so ubiquitous my confusion’s unabated.
