NaPoWriMo – 12/30

An A-W found poem built from Bill Bryson's 'Mother Tongue' index. 

Anglo-Saxon
barbarian tongues
cursed tablets
of double entendres.
Elizabethan,
faggots in gravy
graffiti
Henry V.
Identity;
Johnson and Americanisms
kinship finds
literary masters.
Meanings;
natural history
of our language,
private language.
Questions
rhythms, rhymes,
Shakespeare, so
trust an Englishman.
Universal language
vulgates
Westminster, Wales & Washington.
