Add Another Letter

 

once it was that two made one
that would itself be made again
yesterday to tomorrow united
in the constancy of their today
and though remains as true
as was true when time began
so many letters now are added
ignorant confusion runs amuck
too many left out, some think
“Let’s add another letter!”
yet more makes less unique
less inclusive of the fringe
“Let’s add yet another letter!”
that all but one will have a say
in sad re-writing of this today
