The “Y” Word and its Bully Buddies

by Jim Rapp

You are late again . . .
You always tick me off
You didn’t use your brain
You should have thought of that

Let us ban the “Y” word
from its favored place in line –
send it packing with its buddies
“Didn’t”, “Should”, and “Always”

Bullies all they are
pushing, pounding, pelting
contrasting You’s deficiencies
with their all-sufficient “I”

We could almost do without them
if they didn’t serve so well
when rearranged within the in line
to say, “I love you, always!”
