noun. 1. a doer; a person who does anything, good or bad.
2. (mathematics) a variable of a quantic
adj., combined form. making, causing (as in somnifacient, hypnotic)
Etymology: From Latin facere, to do.
I first ran across facinorous (extremely evil), but was having trouble working that into a poem. It doesn't quite roll off the tongue, but I guess evil shouldn't.
A quantic is a homogeneous function having two or more variables, but that just raises further questions. Long story short, x^2 + 2xy + y^2 would be an example of such a function, and I think x and y would both be quantics.
Now back to our regularly-scheduled programming...
Some days, the sun shames us;
It runs us through with flames and bravery
And burns away our hesitant thoughts
To make us verbs:
Noble, impatient creatures,
Facients, reaching outward.
Focused on some great purpose,
We're stones thrown into stillness
To stir the mud underneath.
But it will not last,
All ripples on a lake must pass to shore
And be absorbed,
And all who wake in light
Must sleep in darkness
And dream of more.
