Bavian


Bavian​

(BAY-vee-en)

Noun:

-An insignificant or unskilled poet.

From (obsolete) German “bavian" (now pavian), meaning “baboon” - from Dutch “baviaan", alteration of “babiaen”.

Used in a sentence:

“If I have to sit through another stanza of that bloviating bavian’s so-called poetry, I swear I’m going to turn in my Hipster Membership Card, shave off my handlebar mustache and sternum length beard, burn my plaid flannels, suspenders and bowtie collection and go get a corporate job! I’m keeping my chukka boots though.”
