Daily Post Prompt: Panoply


MAN'S FACE, FINGER ON CHINI must write a post using “panoply.”
But I’m stuck and a little confused.
For it isn’t a world I use commonly,
For with snobb’ry I feel it’s infused.

I did look up its definition
Just to make sure I wasn’t quite wrong.
Now I’m even more sure it’s pretentious,
For it’s synonym list is quite long.

Now, I’m likely to use the word “trappings,”
Or “collection,” or even “array.”
And in reference to a suit of armor,
Well – “armor” is just what I’d say.

I find this prompt most aggravating.
It offers no useful rewards.
To describe just how irksome I find it
Takes a literal panoply of words.

    1. I’ve heard it used very little and couldn’t remember for sure what it meant either. So when I looked it up and discovered all the “ordinary” words that supposedly mean the same thing, that’s when I got the idea for the poem.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
