Language

When I was a kid I was fascinated
By the stuff at the end of Return of the King
About language

I was stunned to discern
That a C’s just an S (or a K)
And a Q is no more than KW…
So…
WHY DO WE HAVE THEM??

I concocted my own runic alphabets
Where expendable letters are banned
And the ones which are formed by the meeting
Of proximal points and bends of the mouth
Look alike

I invented new months with meaningful names
And each one contained
A sensible portion of days…
Obviously

(February…pfft)

I renamed the days of the week
so they pleased me:
Sunday Moonday Airday Waterday
Earthday Fireday
Starday

Today I pay my bills
By writing code
For clever phones

It’s a pretty good gig – I’m not gonna lie
I get to christen
Every one
Of the variables
