An Orthographic
Lament

by Charles Follen Adams

If an S and an I and an O and a U,
With an X at the end spell SU;

And an E and a Y and an E spell I,
Pray what is a speller to do?

Then if also an S and an I and a G,
And an HED spell side,

There's nothing much left for a speller to do,
But to go commit siouxeyesighed.
