On the Invention of Language

 

 

Your conversation in the room adjoining
makes me wish words had never been invented.
What miserable phrases you are coining!
Your conversation in the room adjoining
vainly and none too deftly is purloining
sounds which at one time left my heart contented.
Your conversation in the room adjoining
makes me wish words had never been invented!
