What in God’s name does this mean?
What means anything at all,
When a gravel pit
And a pigeon share the same

Orthography, and no sense?
After several thousand years

Of language evolution
By repetitive descent
And slow modification,

Kwetwer, the word for four, square,
And kerd, the word for core, heart,
Become common homonyms
In the language that is this.
