You say that but English is much worse. My German friend pointed out
that the German language was fairly easy to follow as it was logical
whereas English was a minefield, demonstrated when we were on the
Worcester and Birmingham canal - as we passed a foreign couple on a boat
going the other way they shouted out that 'Wer-chester' was a lovely place!

There was a young lady from Slough
Came down with a very bad cough
She wasn't to Know
It would last until now
I just hope the poor girl will pull through
