I like phonetics.
We make language with the throat and the mouth.
All the R’s in Spanish or those of McLouth.
Imagine if there was a different kind of man
Different mouth, a tongue like a pan.
They would make different sounds.
They might bark like massive hounds.
They might not be able to learn
The sounds we all strive hard to earn.
Imagine still, if there was a land
Somewhere in the far north, and
It had a speech that’s in-between
With sounds that sound crisp and clean
To me and you and this different man.
Them interpreting: That’s a plan!
They could be the one connection
To bring together our two sections
In teaching us how to speak
Their own language in a week
We would have a common tongue.
Humanity ladder: Up one rung!
I do hope that this was true,
We’d have more sounds that we could spew.
There are sounds that I just like.
They make my tongue jump and hike.
Like the deegee in fridge or Russian’s all esses.
The Spanish, Finnish R and the Chinese chun.
If we had more, I’d bet they’d be fun.
There’d be more to use in a pun.
I’m just glad there are so many already.
You can keep studying till old and unsteady!
