New Letters: Playing The Game - Poem by Douglas Scotney
As I've as good as said b4,
if an upside-down T spelled what sounds 'eet'
you'd save 16 letters in
'Let's beat the heat, Pete:
instead of meeting, seating and eating,
let's just meet and seat.'
Similar time could be freed
if a back-to-front D spelled 'eed'
and an upside-down L spelled 'eel'.
An upside-down M is a W
and one back-to-front is the same,
so 'eem', I feel,
seems to be trying to spoil the game.
