Preparation H is disgusting in taste,

If one did read English no worries bout haste,

Just grab what you need, nothing will you waste,

Better to learn the language than to get a mouthful of paste…J


Blue toilet cleaner is not either juice,

May though make your internals run loose,

Without the knowledge English does produce,

One cannot tell the difference between a goose and a moose,

Or perhaps they are just being deliberately obtuse…J


This stories moral is obvious,

Nothing to make one envious,

Tis an open & shut explanation,

When you do desire to live in this country,

Be sure to get yourself a full and complete English education…J

Education is not what it was a while back. Teachers are too busy filling out paperwork and babysitting the disruptive students to pay attention to the wants who desire to learn.
