Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire

Is also great
And would suffice.
Fire and Ice by Robert Frost

Spelled and scald
Laughed and deft
Dress and boss

Hark, hark! I hear
The strain of strutting chanticleer
("Watty Piper" [Arnold Munk], The Little Engine That Could)
(Ariel in William Shakespeare's The Tempest, Act One, scene 2)

He murmured the words, “I’m sorry,” but I didn’t believe he really was.
Ugh, that cough syrup tastes disgusting.
