Squeamish: Having the characteristics of, or being related to ... a squeam.

What the heck's a squeam? :e2hammer:

( ... No, it's not what the fair maiden does when she espies the dragon.)

Very funny, Poet!

And how about this one: (if you can't guess it, I'll post it)

Sounds like a writer of very rude poetry, but in fact, it's just the reverse, (two words).
