I found a note in my Roget’s Thesaurus today.
It had lain there for nearly fifty years. Did that
make it venerable? Antiquated certainly.
The note detailed the workings which could
be called a tutor’s plan reduced down to an
acronym: TOMIPASTA. (You’ll have to look
that up.) I found it novel. You could call it modern.
I am going for an acrostic for you Mr Roget;
similar but different to the acronym.
So before I confuse us further:
Rock on Roget: they would have said. Oh, my Lord: they would have said. Goodness, gracious: that too. Extraordinary: others exclaimed. Treasury: said the man himself.

for Poetics d/Verse today: https://dversepoets.com/2022/01/18/poetics-the-poets-store-house/. Must say my Roget’s Thesaurus is stained and much used. It was part of a very big step forward in my poetic journey. But other than finding and examining that note I haven’t used it today.
