Word of the Day 10/07/20 Metrophobia

Metrophobia (noun)
metrophobia [ me-truh-foh-bee-uh ]


noun
1. a strong dislike of or aversion to poetry.
2. an irrational or disproportionate fear of poetry: Being forced to read John Donne's sonnets aloud in front of my English class gave me such bad metrophobia that I can't even look at greeting card poetry without getting sweaty palms and a dry mouth.


Origin: First recorded in 1985–90; metro-1 + -phobia

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
