A Latinate My Homework

I invited some Latin nouns and verbs over
But they declined
Unless the visit was conjugal

Latin grammar is wonderful
The language is so easy to grasp to the modern mind
And many great classics of literary
Scientific, and philosophical thought
Are open up to one
Who just understands Latin

I sing this threnody for Latin
A dead language
That's still killing students everywhere

  1. I once got 8 / 100 in a Latin examination ~ I wish I had paid more attention to Latin at Grammar School. I love your clever poem today.
