Dudgeon

DUDGEON

noun
1.a feeling of anger or resentment
2.(obsolete) a kind of wood used in the handles of knives
3.(obsolete) a hilt made of this wood
4.(obsolete) a dagger which has a dudgeon hilt






















Dudgeon had burnt cities to the ground
Leaving little but uncertain memories
And yet more resentment brewing.
