It’s no wonder the dictionary is so full today

letters seem to have tip-toed in without a sound

chorus of approval from teachers

as characters wrangle their way in

like dark knights entering the castle crescent

as you write, the letters appear like ghosts

but read them out wrong – in class – you are toast.

Chaos ensues as night follows day

and you’re stuck in spelling class – while others are at play,
