Linguistic Anguish

I suffer so with linguistic anguish
At corruption of our English language
Spouting double negative pollution
Ascertains no positive conclusion

There ain’t no sense, I have to say
In speaking in this kind of way
I seem to find it most confounding
Why double negatives remain abounding

[Hata Bildir]
