Una poesiola dei tempi dell'università

When the English tongue we speak
Why is 
break not rhymed with weak?
Won’t you tell me why it’s 
We say 
sew, but also few?
And the maker of a 
Cannot rhyme his 
horse with worse?Beard is not the same as heard,Cord is different from word,Cow is cowlow is low,Shoe is never rhymed with foe.
Think of 
hose and dose and lose,
And think of 
goose and yet of choose,
Think of 
comb and tomb and bomb,Doll and roll and home and some.
And since 
pay is rhymed with say,
Why not 
paid with said, I pray?
Think of 
blood and food and good;Mould is not pronounced like could.
Why is 
done, but gone and lone -
Is there any reason 
To sum it up, it seems to 
That sounds and letters don’t
