Waky Word Wednesday - Rantipole

Rantipole

Is a rakish soul,
Has 'going' as a goal,
Plays the wild and young role -
The rantipole.

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.

    1. Rapscallions and rantipoles probably have their own gang. :)

  2. So does that mean a rantipole could be described as rantipolish? Sounds shiny, and angry :)

    1. Yep! Although, that form is used even less often than rantipole. :)

    1. It is quite possible since a rantipoles behavior might make you want to ramble harsh words of advice. :)
