Word ( a poem of tribute)

What...me worry? What...me worry? What...me worry? awkkk...
What...me worry? What...me worry? What...me worry? awkkk...
A word, not always a simple proposition...
A word, not always a simple proposition...
I may cause wards...wurds...ur, warts...
I may cause wards...wurds...ur, warts...


Supercalifragilisticexpiallidocious,

yes, is such a word, no matter how atrocious,

Antidisestablishmentarianism, if all is read,

as pronounced, so very precocious.


Pneumonoiltramicro-scopicsilicovalcanocon-

iosis, as a lung disease, prognosis,

Honorificapabilitudini-tatibus, of England heard,

in Shakespeare's " Love's Labor's Lost", to exist.


Lengthy words of consonants and the nouns,

each so stretched, as to be profound.

The English language is quite complex,

in its slightest rearrangement, hexed.


To all the world, with languages of each,

this fond vocabulary, we try to teach.

We're so blessed with language, vexed,

ours to honor, its statue, we'll erect.


By the way:Tuimidrenicagitokalauenatobak-

onatewaenanonoskoktamanakis-

omosomome-lakivolainaivolanikawabulasok-

omailesutalesigadua,..possibly a man's name,

and I bid adieu.

Whonu, this is a fun and humorous poem. It is said that the English language is one of the hardest to learn because our rules are not consistent. Even American born folks have a hard time with it!

BTW, the comments section is missing from your Writers poem. Thought you'd like to know.
