Twisting words is for crooks,
This applies to politics and writing books.
All those synonyms, as if they were needed,
Rules of clarity go all but unheeded.
Languages as well, some are seedy,
Grammatical rules with exceptions are needy.
I learned Spanish in school,
The teachers took me for a fool:
Conjugating verbs, distorting their meaning
I wouldn’t have it, so I did some cleaning.
I got a fail on every exam,
Past perfect tense? I don’t give a damn.
That is why I’m now learning Chinese.
No conjugation, the grammar’s just a breeze.
