I love the word nifty. I don't hear it very often.
"Save Nifty" by Marykelly

Nifty is a superlative word without the ending, est.
It says more than good or better, it says this is the best.
Something that is nifty outshines all the rest,
it passes go, it looks great, it aces every test.

Nifty is so versatile, it describes most anything.
Daffodils and irises are nifty flowers in spring,
majestic eagles taking flight stretch their nifty wings,
when sharing vows, the bride and groom exchange nifty rings.

Nifty is the way to say, something can't be beat,
it's an uplifting word to use, a vocabulary treat.
So say it once or twice a day, don't let it meet defeat,
and don't let this nifty word become obsolete.

Author Notes
Nifty is one of those words that I seem to be the only one using. Help save nifty.
