All Wind

Now Chuck was a fearsome virago,

who hailed from windy Chicago.

But his manners were wane,

indeed some thought him insane,

So he's hightailed it back on Wells Fargo.

 

 

 

Note: it is rather odd that Chuck, designated as a virago, fits the definition,
which is, also oddly, curiously contradictory:

1. A woman regarded as noisy, scolding, or domineering.

2. A large, strong, courageous woman.

Synonyms: fishwife, fury, harpy, scold, shrew, vixen, battle-ax

From the Latin Bible:

Virago is the Latin Bible's word for woman. It was the name given by Adam to the first woman when she was created out of his rib. (The name was later changed to Eve.) The Latin Bible says:

Dixitque Adam hoc nunc os ex ossibus meis et caro de carne mea haec vocabitur virago quoniam de viro sumpta est. (And Adam said: This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man.)
