Why a question should begin
With this letter and not a simple Y
When Y, as is evident,
Works just as well
Wracks my mind.
Who, in the history of orthography
Was responsible for this
Wasteful use of letters?
Without the H Why is still
Wy, and as much so with only Y.
Whimsy here is not my game.
What I’m after actually –
Which I think you’ll appreciate – is a
Way of spelling English free of the
Wretched phonetic difficulties
We’ve all been heir to, and
Wondered woefully Why? Wy? Y?
