Poetry, Day 4: Imperfect, Limerick, Enjambment
(so this may only be the case in England – but if you have any English friends, note how they pronounce ‘the’ as thee whenever they are choosing from a menu – it really is quite funny)
For some time it’s been a great puzzle to me
why, when ordering food the word ‘the’ becomes thee.
‘I’ll have thee… boneless chicken thighs, please
With a side of mustard and peas!
And, waiter? Did you notice how I used thee just for thee?’
