Visual Description:  Expressing our inner-pyromaniac!

CCARK  =  CRACK,  YAAKK  =  KAYAK,  ROUPOT  =  UPROOT,  FLESUU  =  USEFUL   —   Giving us:  CKYCROTSE

(This one was tougher than it looked!  At least it was for me.  This is from the last stanza of the U.S. National Anthem.  It’s heard very seldomly, as we usually hear only the first stanza.  Very appropriate for the celebration of our Independence Day, here in the U.S.!  Everybody have a safe and happy holiday!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
