Sesquipedalian Vocab

Fierce Andrew Carnegie
Bought-up Great Mesabi,
The giant iron ore range,
Then told the economists,
"Cut out the middleman!"
Was the word they then used.

"Sesquipedalian" appeared in the Schott's Vocab
weblog of NYTIMES.COM on September 18, 2009 as a comment on
multi-syllabic vocab.
