To this we must allude: mental prowess fine and crude.
From this we must conclude:
perspicacious, keen and shrewd.

To this we must allude: moral decay rash and prude.
From this we must conclude:
hasty prudence, poise and mood.

To this we must allude: gorgeous model clad and nude.
From this we must conclude:
dazzling posture, pure and lewd.

To this we must allude: great excesses one and brood.
From this we must conclude:
extravagance, drink and food.

To this we must allude: trendy manner kind and rude.
From this we must conclude:
common nature, still and feud.
