Alphabet Rebellion

Alphabet Rebellion
 ©1991 Susan Noyes Anderson

I'm dotting every I, and
I am crossing every T.
I'm putting letters down, and
I erase them frequently.

I'm holding whole words hostage
at the point of my pen.
If I don't like the way they look,
I scratch them out again.

G – R – U thinking like I am?
Could our ABCs rebel?
If they went out on a strike,
whatever would we use to spell?

Most people nowadays don't spell things correctly anyway. Therefore, most people, unfortunately, wouldn't miss them.

And that's the sad, honest truth.

This poem sounds like the opening of a children's book.

Amy said...

:) I am teaching my kids the ABC's. The proper way to write them and it is hard work for us both! I am sure this poem would resonate with them.

As long as I have '!!!!' I think I could survive for a short while!
