Messing with letters… Zomniscience…

Dulltown, Europe: Today’s expletive is…
Oh, by the way, in 1623 an Act of Parliament was passed in England which made it a legal offence to swear. A fine of one shilling was imposed for every oath or curse; if the offender couldn’t afford to pay he/she would be put in the stocks. (S)
Anyway, from back then, today’s fine expletive is ‘Stap me vitals!…’

Here is a simple, but annoying puzzle involving the letter ‘Z’.
Yes, it does look like a poem doesn’t it? But no, it isn’t one.
I call this the ‘Blocksmith Puzzle’ because its origin is in a keyboard error I once made typing the word ‘locksmith’.

Some of the letter ‘Z’s have been deliberately loosened from this page; please tip all these words into a small bag, give it a good shake, and then tip them out to see if order can spontaneously arise from chaos.
