A Very Descript Man

I am such a dolent man,
I eptly work each day;
My acts are all becilic,
I've just ane things to say.

My nerves are strung, my hair is kempt,
I'm gusting and I'm span:
I look with dain on everyone
And am a pudent man.

I travel cognito and make
A delible impression:
I overcome a slight chalance,
With gruntled self-possesion.

My, dignation would be great
If I should digent be:
I trust my vagance will bring
An astrous life for me.

(attributed to a J.H. Parker)

I like it!

"Disastrous" actually means "Against the stars". Conastrous would be the opposite!

Then "astrous" alone would seem to imply "of the stars." I think that would work.

Which is what "consider" means, as well. "With the stars". To consider something means literally to consult the astrology of what you are doing.
