Wacky Word Wednesday - Gormless

Gormless
by Rachel Hoyt

Those who are gormless
are completely harmless
though may appear thoughtless
which may seem a bit reckless
but really they can't help all this
because they're just a bit brainless.

Gosh I'm glad I'm not gormless.

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. My sister sent me a very cool dictionary which inspired the series. Most of the words are from there... so far. :)

  6. Gormless must be what I am these days
    Though I cannot tell for sure
    I just like to do things in my weird ways
    (But I sure hope there's a cure!)
