On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.
We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.
A word that is not an acronym but is taken to be one, and for which a full form is invented by back-formation.
Some companies or products spawn multiple humorous backronyms, with positive connotations asserted by supporters or negative ones by detractors. For example, the car company Ford was said to stand for "First On Race Day", by aficionados,but disparaged as "Fix Or Repair Daily", by critics. Similar backronyms have been directed against many other automakers, such as "Fix It Again Tony" for Fiat.
