Bad English - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

There ain't nuthin' more worse
than bad English 'n grammar,
it's when fools treat good verse
with a saber-toothed hammer.
It's a shame says me mother
they pay teachers no mind,
as us talk to each other
them ain't words they can find.
So I say to me mates
if you done what you must
you go visit the States
watch your lingo go bust.
