Southern Ways

Written by: DrJim Martin

They say I have a Southern drawl.
They tease because I use the word “ya’ll”.
I really don’t understand all the concern
Why I can’t another lingo learn.

We all are different – each unique.
So think about this when you must critique.
My way may seem weird to you,
But yours is weird to others too.

“Soda” or “Pop” – what difference does it make?
We all the same beverages partake.
Whichever we like, it tastes the same.
Each can decide the proper name.

If you don’t like the lingo here
Move to another – have no fear.
If, however, you choose to remain,
Don’t try to change us!  Please refrain!
