Speaking in Tongues!

So many forms, our speech can take.
Whether it be signed, felt, or spake.

High class ladies, with tones so prim.
Cockney cabbies, out on a limb.

Middle class toffs, with nasal drawl.
Babies a’crying, the ravenous bawl.

Northern monkeys, with absent vowels,
Southern fairies, emitting low growls.

A tongue is a tongue, as long as it’s shared.
Vocab so bright, no puns to be spared.

A poem inspired by today’s Daily Post: Take That, Rosetta! | The Daily Post.

    Aw this is awesome. Love the melody of the different dialects coming through in the way you have written it.
