oN transformatioN

Never forget the fella

who sits after M, before O,

without him, my friend, you’d be fried,

all things nice would feel like ice: cold.

Happy sand would be sad,

every band would be bad,

and bananas, like sheep, 

simply baaa.

So respect that letter,

just one past halfway,

who keeps windows from being widows,

everywhere, everyday.

Q it UP!

Q is a letter
that sounds like a word
spelled without it:

That looks like an O
with a little pigtail
hanging down from
its little Q booty.

Q rarely is seen
without U by its side
(but don’t make a big deal,
Q, too, has its pride)

A dependent letter
with an independent mind
is Q.
