Even the Pronouns

Even the Pronouns

Even the pronouns bellow in your ear:
“Request for purer English is denied!”
Amigo: no one holds such standards dear.
Even the pronouns bellow in your ear
That the old words will swiftly disappear,
Replaced by borrowed ones. “Desist!” they’ve cried.
Even the pronouns bellow in your ear:
“Request for purer English is denied!”

–Tom Riley
