There is no such thing as a egg within the eggplant,
No ham within the hamburger
And neither pine nor apple within the pineapple.
English muffins weren’t invented in England,
French fries weren’t invented in France.
We generally take English without any consideration, but when we study its paradoxes we discover that:
Quicksand takes you down slowly,
Boxing rings are sq.,
And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea neither is it a pig.
If writers write, how come fingers do not fing?
If the plural of tooth is tooth,
Should not the plural of telephone sales space be telephone beeth?
If the instructor taught,
Why hasn’t the preacher praught?
If a vegetarian eats greens,
What the heck does a humanitarian eat?
Why do folks recite at a play,
But play at a recital?
Park on driveways and
Drive on parkways?
How can the climate be as sizzling as hell on sooner or later
And as chilly as hell on one other?
It’s a must to marvel on the distinctive lunacy of a language the place a home can deplete because it burns down,
And by which you fill in a type
By filling it out
And a bell is just heard as soon as it goes!
English language was invented by folks, not computer systems,
And it displays the creativity of the human race
(Which after all is not a race in any respect.)
That’s the reason:
When the celebrities are out they’re seen,
However when the lights are out they’re invisible.
And why it’s that after I wind up my watch
However after I wind up this poem
