Postum nabisco

[ #10367 ]
Dear Log,

The following is a "Horatian ode" by an unknown author, which appears in H. L. Mencken's The American Language, p. 173:

Chipeco thermos dioxygen, temco sonora tuxedo
Resinol fiat bacardi, camera ansco wheatena;
Antiskid pebeco calox, oleo tyco barometer
  Postum nabisco!

Prestolite arco congoleum, karo aluminum kryptok,
Crisco balopticon lysol, jello bellans, carborundum!
Ampico clysmic swoboda, pantasote necco brittanica
  Encyclopaedia?
