Can you wrap your mind
around a 'Tongue-Twister' -
or is it a 'Mind-Bender?'
perhaps a 'Twisted Sister?'
how say you - 'Madame?'
or is it 'Mister?'

If One studied at Cornell,
T’would know the difference T’ween -
A Wheat Kernel and an Army Colonel,
And One’s own Colon!
Something that’s just Normal -
May be called General -
Also - an Army Officer - Pray Tell -
Isn’t Language Swell?
A Promotion for a Colonel
May make him/her a General -
Jot it in your Journal -
Your Computer Core also has a Kernel!
A Knot on a Tree Trunk is a Burl -
A Kentucky Tobacco Leaf is a Burley -
Someone Strong and Robust is Burly -
So Saith: Larry, Moe, and Curly!
Noisy, bustling activity is - Hurly-Burly -
A Helicopter is a Bird that is ‘Whirly.’
If you are a Nut - then you are ‘Squirrelly.’
On That Note - let’s End Early!
