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?

Due Oar Dye

Eye due knot knead you’re flours
oar you’re complements too sea
ewe dew knot no witch weigh eye sale
oar wear eye wont too bee
Eye prey four piece, eye prey four rein
Eye prey four ewe a gain end a gain.
Butt awl ewe wont too halve eye no
cant bee aloud too bee.
