An Action Boomerangs



An adverse retroaction. A conduct to decry.
A swift retaliation.
An apropos reply.
An inauspicious backlash. A portentous retort.
An unpropitious rehash.
A negative report.
A palpitating recoil. An uncertain retreat.
A precarious assoil.
An unforeseen defeat.
An unexpected backfire. A surprising rebound.
An undulating desire.
A frenzy to astound.
A countermanding response. An order of slam-bangs.
A flammable brisance.
An action boomerangs.
