Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is a fear of long words,
Borrowing from other languages, is all English affords;
From ‘anonymous’ in Greek,
To describing the ‘meek’;
Not, naught and knot
Aren’t enough to define the drought;
Misery loves company anywhere,
It’s schadenfraude everywhere!
Yet we yearn to be English-speaking,
Look down upon non-speakers, critiquing;
Heights of colonialism, you say?
A trap of universal unification, if I may!
