I am disheartened by the large decline

In the vocabulary choices made

By others who are posting things online

I wonder how their English papers grade…


I like to open books that smell with age

Appreciating how the words are used

At close of day at friends I have to rage

Language should not be something that’s abused


wuts up wit u? I shudder at the sight

I cannot stand the choices that they make.
