Don’t Circum To Temptation

Circum is a prefix

Whose presence does effect

In many ways its second part,

For instance: Circumspect.

If Circum is added to

A position in a dance

You will find that you have made

A unique circumstance.

If instead you circum

A trip to another state

You might be delighted

That you can circumnavigate.

There are circum words

That most people can’t define

Like circumference and circumscribe

And circumquasiredefine.

But there’s a word that to circum

Would not be very wise.

You may have guessed by now

That that word, of course, is “size.”
