Xtreme Xpectations

I make this appeal,
to Mr. "Dictionary" guy!
I'm a little disturbed,
and I'll tell you why!

Words starting with "X",
are way far too few.
Xray and xylophone,
I can only name two!

Although X-words aren't called for,
too often, that's true,
when they are, it's disaster,
I don't mind telling you!

On behalf of all poets,
I'd like to suggest,
a way to correct this
that I think is best.

There's a whole bunch of "E" words,
we could use, don't you see.
All we need do,
is get rid of the "E"!

Now they'd be "X" words,
like xceed and xcite.
Xpand and xtreme,
which would make it alright!

There would be plenty of words left
starting with "E".
Also many more "X" words,
I'm sure you can see!

Well, that's my suggestion,
but I xpect you won't care!
I got to xpress what I thiink!
I feel better - SO THERE!

    This is definitely a fun and unique poem! Maybe it would be better if we spelled everything phonetically...(I mean foneticale).

    I agree with you, Ralph! What would it hurt to drop a few "e's"? Oh well. Great write. Love, Kim
