Wacky Word Wednesday - Vim

Vim
by Rachel Hoyt


There is a thing called vim,
A force that lives within,
A vigor never dim,
The opposite of grim,
A lively whim,

Every week I rhyme and define a new wacky word.
Come on over to indulge your inner nerd.
And, please let me know of any weird words you've heard.

    1. I'm guessing whoever named Vimto knew the meaning of vim. I'll have to look for that drink next time I travel. :)

  12. Great fun! I feel energized already. :)

  13. Vim is also a cleaner (powdered stuff to scrub pots and pans, making them shiny). So I guess it's energizing even to inanimate objects...interesting word and thoughts.
