Conrad: Spelling Reformer? - Poem by Douglas Scotney

In 'The Nigger Of Narcissus',
Norma,

during the bout about
Jimmy Wait,

as both words sound alike,

is native Pole
Conrad

just digging at English spelling

when mouthpiece for egalitarianism
Donkin

mouths 'masheens'
and not 'machines';

or is there back-up,
Norma,

to call him
digger
and
reformer?
