this is not a spelling mistake

nor is it a chance to take

its a word that just exists

because I made it with my fists

I tapped it out and forgot a letter

which makes the word all the better

now it has some mystery

means something different to you and me

so what about these word we make

these grammatical rules we choose to break

to combine words to create the new

now just one what was two

this whole poem was just a thought

don’t be offended or distraught

I like to question all conventions

especially words draw my attention

maternal influence is the cause

and for this she earns applause

this is the end of my poem

I give it to you to make your own
