I like your footnote, , and I agree disyllabic sounds better to my ears as well.

How do you feel about: auto-mobile, aqua-phobia, dys-function, poly-amory, hetero-sexual, homo-sexual, socio-path … all of which combine Greek + Latin roots. I think they sound beautifully exotic.

Maybe I’ll take up your challenge and use a hybrid word in each verse ; )
