We sat with unreadable grin or pout,
For by then we had learned
That the class always turned
Our old certainties into impending doubt.

I’ve known my share of academics.
There’s insightbut more often polemics.
And in lieu of ideas
Some just fix on careers
And are less fun than morphophonemics.

Young people don’t speak as they ought.
But those who’re afraid
That our tongue has decayed
Just repeat what old Cicero thought.

Had aspirations in creating drills.
With tongue retroflexed

And thus showing phonetics gives thrills.
—Bhaby Bhoomer

Appeldorf, Apfeldorf.
Old Georg Wenker, the

—I. Speyer
