Parts of Speech

All the world’s a page
And all the people in it  merely words.
They have their conjugations and their tenses
(Not to mention declensions and grammatical gender.)
If we were both words what sort would I be?
 If you were a word would you fit next to me
To make sense, make a sentence?

“Adjectives,” said Humpty Dumpty, “Are easiest.
You can do anything with them,
Not like verbs.”
Myself I see as an adjective
Weak, compliant, easily swayed
You, on the other hand, are clearly a verb
Verbal, verbose, even, but active not passive
Concerned with action, movement, making things happen
A strong verb.

I am a poet, therefore I am crazy - see Shakespeare "the lunatic, the lover and the poet..." I also write plays and stories and do the press reports for my local WI. I ride a recumbent trike, a Hase Kettwiesel - I love it!
