Lets face it, English is a stupid language.
    There is no egg in the eggplant.
    No ham in the hamburger.
    And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple.
    English muffins were not invented in England.
    And French fries were not invented in France.
    We sometimes take English for granted.
    But if we examine its paradoxes we find that
    Quicksand takes you down slowly,
    Boxing rings are square
    And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
    If writers write, how come fingers don`t fing?
    If the plural of tooth is teeth,
    Shouldn`t the plural of phone booth be phone beeth?
    If the teacher taught,
    Why didn`t the preacher praught?
    If a vegetarian eats vegetables,
    What the heck does a humanitarian eat!?
    Why do people recite at a play,
    Yet play at a recital?
    Park on driveways and
    Drive on parkways?
    How can the weather be as hot as hell on one day
    And as cold as hell on another?
    You have to marvel at the unique lunacy
    Of a language where a house can burn up as
    It burns down.
    And in which you fill in a form,
    By filling it out.
    And a bell is only heard once it goes!
    English was invented by people, not computers.
    And it reflects the creativity of the human race.
    (Which of course isn`t a race at all)
    That is why,
    When the stars are out, they are visible
    But when the lights are out, they are invisible
    And it`s why when I wind up my watch,
    It starts.
    But when I wind up this poem,
    It ends.
