Friday Poem

∃ rules of natural language?


Untitled Poem

I thought I saw a woman who
Had made her car go straight on through
And did not know just she did:
She “‍drove‍” or “‍drived‍” or maybe “‍drid‍”?
I like my mother tongue a lot
But with the etym. that it’s got
It seems I spend a bit much thought
With tense from Latin, vowels French brought
I love the flex the lang so oft bestows
But rules get messy as it grows.
