Rating: 5.0
My dictionary's extra pages,
occupancy (presence) and weight
from its Scottish words
are okayed by some words
that are not in the glossary
of my collected poems of Robert Burns;

also, by 'shilpit'
adj sickly-looking; puny; insipid;
watery; inferior.

I now have a word for bad art;

for an ineffective punch;

also, for the watery grape
I find in a homegrown bunch.
