For All Who Reed and Right

Mr.Roger, our MUET teacher gave us this poem yesterday and i find it very fascinating!! Enjoy reading it!!

We'll begin with a box and the plural is boxes,
but the plural of ox became oxen not oxes,
One fowl is a goose but two are called geese
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese
You may find a lone mouse or nest full of mice
yet the plural of house is houses not hice.

If the plural of man is always called men
Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?
If i spoke of my foot and show you my feet,
and i give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?

Then One maybe that, and three would be those
Yet had in the plural would never be hose.
And the plural of cat is cats not cose.

Let's face it,
English is a crazy language
There is no egg in eggplant- terung in bm
Nor hem in hamburger
Neither apple nor pine in pineapple,
English muffins weren't invented in ENgland!!!
