Elegy on the Irregular Verb

 

The poetry of language once

Began my love of words,

But poetry is giving way

To easiness in verbs.

 

I dedicate these simple lines

To those whose memories, like mine,

Allow for lit in lieu of lighted,

And shone instead of shined.

 

For we who strove instead of strived,

At least we’ve not been blessed with “drived”.
