Name Changeover - Poem by Ima Ryma

Illegal immigrant - not nice,
Dehumanizing to so call.
Need a 'gay' type word - how 'bout ice?
Oops - prob'ly not so good at all.
Need something safe from the word pool,
Not tied to the reality,
With sure sound byteness - how 'bout 'cool'?
Other meanings, but 'cool' could be
Illegal immigrant - but said
In a pleasant and a hip way.
No nasty naming, but instead
One is so 'cool' is what we'd say.

Yes, confusion could dump upon,
But look how good 'gay' has caught on!
