Can't Put the Pen Down…

A World Called English

I love the English language.
It’s a world full of contradictions,
words that sound like other words that
do not remotely mean the same thing and
seem to exist solely to separate the casual
English speaker from the dedicated
English lover.
English is a language where we wear
words alliteratively, literally adorning
our writings with sound as well as meaning.
Honestly, does my assonance look big in this poem?

    I like the way you use the word ‘alliteratively’ after an example of alliteration. And as for that last line – love it! 🙂
