I is the biggest word
in the English language:
some people yawn bored
as soon as you mention it.
I know people who erect crosses
made from it
and then refuse to carry them.
I know people who build extentions
onto it and call
those extensions their children.
I know people who would
like to keep changing it
every week with fashionable clothing.
I know people who hate it so much
it's become an obsession,
like priest always ranting against sin.
In English, "I" begins the sentence:
the other words queue up behind it
waiting for their instructions.
you must write "I" with a capital letter
but "we" with a small one.
Why?... Well... as in God and Great Britain.
i know a person who tries to make it
mock itself, to disguise ambition.
i know a person who thinks it will outlive
the exploring body, the inflated mind.
