Encyclopedic Pedants



The encyclopedia
has many things to know.
The alphabetical order is a directive flow
.
The encyclopedia
has fifty million words.
The vocabulary lexis is that which undergirds.

The encyclopedia
has thirty-five grand sheets.
The essential information is what wisdom completes.

The encyclopedia
has sixty-five grand tracts.
The industrious articles is based on researched facts.

The encyclopedia
has twenty-five grand shots.
The myriad illustrations is evidence for plots.

The encyclopedia
if read from A to Z
will fill the coffers of the mind quite pedantically.
