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.
