Wacky Word Wednesday - Bloviate

Bloviate
by Rachel Hoyt

Politicians sometimes bloviate,
because they think that their ideas are great,
and boast of them when they orate,
and elaborate but don't deviate
as they spout slogans and stories to which we relate...
 
I'll stop here before I bloviate.

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.
