THERE’S NO I IN EYE
There’s no I in EYE,
But hear it I can’t DENY;
Nor an I to be found in FLY,
For which I must ask: WHY?
I find no C in SEA,
As you can plainly SEE;
When I find no F in GRAPH,
It makes me want to LAUGH.
There are no Y’s in HAWAII’s:
Do you think this is WISE?
I can’t find an A in WEIGH:
“Just the way it is,” say THEY.
Even in names: JESUS has no G,
Nor has JEANNIE. Makes you wonder. Gee!
When there is no E in HUMPTY DUMPTY,
It makes me rather GRUMPY.
Oddly, there’s a Q in queue, but not in CUE,
And it makes no sense that there’s no U in DO.
Even French has no O in L’EAU,
Yet it’s H2O! Go cry in a CHATEAU!
There’s no X in WRECKS or Z in DAISY,
Yet there are two E’S in EYE. How crazy!
Language is nuts when CADE’S CAVE has no K’s.
Enough is enough. I rest my CASE.
