      the worthless word for the day is: metromania

      [fr. Gk metron: measure, meter + -mania]
      excessively fond of writing verses
      (also metromanie)

      "It is not very often that I am seized with the
      Metromania but the Fit came on this morning."
      - W. B. Stevens, Jrnl. 9 Oct. 1795

      "Of all the manias of this mad age, the most incur-
      able.. seems to be no other than the metromanie."
      - Blackwood's Edinburgh Mag. (1818)
