Dictator Is No Dictater - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

All there be is when custom, no rule,
The tail wags, an un-fixed tinkered tool,
Free for all a feigned rule,
And free-spell the sole school,
When spirit of time wills feel free, cool!
_____________________________________________ _______________
Suffixes (the tail) not long back still mattered, but no longer. Noun
formation from a verb with a suffix at the end (whether it should be
an –er or –or) these days hardly matters, and either seems good enough.
So, impostor becomes imposter; protester becomes protestor; most
advisers are now advisors; supervisers, supervisors; yet sailors, sailers;
and jailers, jailors. Even the difference between dictator and dictater has
vanished. Little can be done if custom has no system; no rule reigns.
