So What's So Funny


The English slanguage that's what's so funny

Did you ever stop to think what you may be saying Honey

Icing on the cake is not icing on the street

Scraps from your plate are not scraps in garage heat

Taps in morning wake up call are not taps in your sink

Pink roses, though lovely, do not put you in the pink

Thousands of provincialisms do exist

These are a very few from  the language grist

Not grist from a mill mind you

I think I'll take an aspirin, you too?


So What's So Funny(c)2008 Quentin Clingerman
