  1. SLAM FOR CHANGE:

    Here we are
    Called by the Muse;
    Digging our Minds
    For a change…
    A change for better
    through the lyric
    inks and tongues…
    Here we are -
    The Poetry Forum…

  2. Abnormalities in Spoken English…

    I wander how we English speak
    without a care for error peak.
    And when you ask a phonic hat,
    You only hear that that is that…

    I’m not a fool – I can’t agree
    like those that dive in fooling sea -
    that – one can change the ‘say’ to /sez/,
    but never turn the ‘pay’ to /pez/.
    They say that past of ‘say’ is /sed/,
    but never say that ‘pay’ is /ped/…

    I can’t afford to call the ‘isle’
    the way I call my poetry ‘file’…
    But how can ‘ewe’ be called as ‘you’,
    And ‘P’ in soup is not in ‘coup’?

    And why is it that ‘awe’ is ‘or’
    And say that ‘corps’ is called like core?
    And how can ‘rapped’ be called like ‘rapt’;
    but ‘depot’ kills the ‘t’ in ‘…pot’?

    I don’t believe that ‘whew’ is ‘few’
    and even think that ‘queue’ is ‘Q’!
    Do you believe that ‘fete’ is ‘fate’,
    whereas the ‘mete’ is never ‘mate’?

    We only say that ‘sew’ is ‘sow’,
    but never heard that ‘chew’ is ‘chow’!
    You need look at ‘show’ and ‘chow’ -
    compare to ‘sow’ and also ‘cow’…
    And how timbre becomes /tamba/,
    but timber sticks to that /timba/…

    The phonic hats should seat again
    and put a stop to phonic pain…!
