Nonsense, or non-sense verse?
See, it is not my language-
nor is it of my people, nor of my will,
that I had to ‘master’ it.
No, so I’ll take the liberty, and excuse of the foreigner;
So, what if I mangle it, in tense, accent, usage?
I am a foreigner, you see?!
I’ll strangle, throttle, mangle and murder it.
Just consider it, well, a privilege
if a sense of what I mean you gather;
but, dare not, upbraid me not-
for speaking a foreign tongue so well!
