in college I started to use instant messaging
soon I got used to the habit of friends
forgoing formalities such as the capital
sentence beginnings and dots at the ends
of course they’d abbreviate popular phrasing
like talk to you later to ttyl
for my part I started to go a bit further
by shortening words I did not like to spell
so through became thru and then though became tho
as I told an IMer more formal than others
he called me an anarchist I begged to differ
I simply asserted my personal druthers
the rules of our language aren’t set by committee
they shift with the millions who speak it worldwide
instead of an anarchist call me a democrat
hoping linguistics will come to my side
