obscure word 7-9-7
"Barely Survived" by starkat

                   While black bears ransack my house
                   I scrunch-down in the old attic trunk
                       Croochie-proochles pain persists


Obscure Word 7-9-7 writing prompt entry

Writing Prompt
It's that time again! Time to pull out those ol' dictionaries and find a word that we rarely (if ever!) hear used and write a 7-9-7 that makes us WANT to use it!! Seriously, make us laugh! Make us impressed at your word prowess! Shock our eyebrows into our hairline! But just make us vote for yours! :) :)
A 7-9-7 is a three-line poem such that:

first line -- seven syllables
second line -- nine syllables
third line -- seven syllables

Author Notes
Croochie-proochles ( a Scots dialect word) - means the feeling of discomfort from sitting in a cramped position.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
