The great kings of yore—Vercingetorix,
Theodoric, Gorm, and the Chilperics—
Enjoyed royal power
In palace or tower,
But none of them ruled like Linguimericks!
(with the assistance of Vincenzo Festino-Scroccone)
As His Linguistness crafted some rules,
All his students drank in these new jewels.
He then sat back, delighted:
“Once again, I’ll get cited.
That is all I require of these fools.”
—Cailín na Luimní
All hail to our muse, great Nan Tucket,
Who fills the linguimerick bucket!
They’re certainly numerous—
And some even humorous—
So dainty Calliope can suck it!
—α-Betty Abū Gida
King Psammeticus showed us the way
The “original language’s” da-
Ta from kids to recover
When there is no mother
Or father to teach what to say.
—Morris Swadesh III
Morons, you thoughtless peevers against all linguistic innovations,
Regardless whether Shakespeare used them too,
Be they never so well accepted and current among the most respected speakers and writers of our language, those whose influence we can daily see.
Culpable, multiple ways, of perverting and distorting our language...
