I whewed unto myself
I whewed unto who cares to listen
I screeched unto them
I warbled unto all

She is a beauty to behold
But beyond beauty
My dear country is suffering
She is suffering from . . . megalomania

My expected willing whee
Became my unexpected unwilling wheel
To which I wee unwillingly 
At the sight of the whittle

Whence forth is my whet to Whelm 
My willingness to willingly will my will
To my beauty beholding beyond beauty 
My dear country is
She is . . . stealthy coquettish.
