Irenic may look a lot like ironic,
but that is, at best, a mnemonic.
An irenic soul wants peace and isn't demonic.
An irenic might rather drink gin and tonic
and listen to something symphonic,
though it may seem hedonic,
because an irenic seeking peace in a glass seems ironic.

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.
