makE no mistakE

A-I-O and-U agree
in their eternal love for E,
that vitamin that helps the vowels
sound like who they be.

When a mat needs a mate
or a lobe comes from a lob,
when the slim become slime
that’s ol’ E on the job.

Who can make a rat rate?
can make a shin shine?
can make a hug huge?
or make a fin fine?

E looks like an afterthought
tacked there on the tail
but without E on occasion
the vowels self-esteem might fail.

So when tin must be a tine
When a lug must luge
When a pin need be pine
just one letter will do.

EvidEncE – Except in baseball, Es are tremendously helpful.
