Like a size-too-large shoe; it does not fit true
IRREGARDLESS of who? Good lord, that won't do!

Preachers will preach it and good teachers teach it
Politicians used it; lawyers abused it

Rhodes Scholars quoted it; speechwriters wrote it
Musicians note it and gossipers float it

It's rather absurd how our English is slurred
In case you haven't heard: There AIN'T NO SUCH WORD!!

    Bravo Mr. Tim. I'm stubborn to see any vocabulary changed.

    Tee hee, these words creep in and vocab seems to absorb them. I find a lot have been added in recent past and I tend to avoid using them.

    This made me smile. I'm going to have a great day forward, 'irregardless' of what it throws at me... :-). Suzette

    Good one Tim. Regardless of what so many people seem to think, irregardless is a figment of their imaginations.

    hahaha, you chose well. I always found this so funny when people use it too. I need to find another bad grammar word to write a poem about myself.
