I

Baffle in battle of words,
like babble of cattle,
bitter as trifling afflictions,
cow above many.

II

Fumble in gamble of cords,
like tumble of crumble,
litter as crippling infections,
mow above many.

III

Hobble in topple of fords,
like droplet of triplet,
jitter as tripping affections,
pow above many.

IV

Trample in prattle of swords,
like startle of rattle,
tippler as gripping infractions,
tow along many.

V

Tremble in ramble of hordes,
like topsy of turvy,
pricker as cramping refractions,
sow by many.
