The Lyrics

They put the spelling crew
along a line.
The first kids blows it and he’s through,
then he’s cryin’,

I can’t understand it:
they’re all going down.
What’s this failure gambit?
They’re supposed to be the best around.
It’s eerie!

They suck, this spelling crew…
quite far from fine,
not fine.

A boo-boo:
one more’s through.
More drop too
What a zoo! There’s no bows
warranted there.
Bad orthography…
it could be cows
there for the spelling crew.
Bring on the kine!

Every spelling bee winner I can remember for the past few years has been from India or Indian-born parents. I suppose there, if you can spell your own name, you can spell almost anything. I tried to figure out how to say "spelling bee" in Spanish. "Concurso de Ortografia" would translate, but the institution itself would be meaningless in that language. Of all the languages using a Roman style alphabet, only Irish, Scottish or Manx Gaelic would even compare with English for lack of correspondence of spelling to sound.

Upon a nunatak I pondered the benefits of my school's Feldenkrais. As I sat there practicing scherenschnitte, I came to realize that the faculty valued gesellschaft over gemeinschaft. I tittered as I recalled an article about stichomythias I had seen in a feuilleton earlier in the day. My day was ruined as I heard the clamor my school's bullies rushing toward me and realized I was caught in a guetapens.
