(Unleashing the ten year old me…)
English is so confusing and confounding, o lord!
I think I’ll go crazy studying it, egad!
The table has two pairs of legs but refuses to walk
The chair has arms but can only rock!
The hands of the clock are useless there
For neither can they clap nor comb my hair!
The comb has innumerable teeth yet cannot bite
Whereas the shoe has only a tongue but still manages to bite!
The ear of corn is the most useless of all
It can never ever hear when I give a call!
The heart of the artichoke never ever beats
The nose of the aeroplane surprisingly never leaks!
Oh mom, please help me I will go crazy
For there’s frog in my throat and butterflies in my tummy!
Now, don’t you lose temper or harangue
Mom! I think that the cat has got your tongue!
