Shakespearean Variations: - Poem by Douglas Scotney

the three between 'proprietor' and 'prosaic'
are 'propriety': your what makes you you;
'propugnation': defense;
and 'prorogue': to postpone or (perhaps) keep from exertion.

The next one is 'prospecting':
in the jargon of today,
putting yourself out there,
being bold,
and flashing's dooble,
'panning for gold'.
