“The Stuttering Lover” By Fred Emerson Brooks

I LU-LOVE you very well,

Much mu-more than I can tell,

With a lu-lu-lu-lu-love I cannot utter;

I kn-know just what to say

But my tongue gets in the way,

And af-fe-fe-fe-fe-fection ‘s bound to stutter!

When a wooer wu-wu-woos ,

And a cooer cu-cu-coos,

Till his face is re-re-red as a tomato,

Take his heart in bi-bi-bits,

Every portion fi-fi-fits,

Though his love song su-su-seem somewhat staccato!

I ‘ll wu-worship you, of course,

And nu-never get divorce,

Though you stu-stu-stu-stu-storm in angry weather;

For whu-when you ‘re in a pique,

So mu-mad you cannot speak,

We ‘ll be du-du-du-du-dumb then both together.

Lot’s Wife

“And Lot’s wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she was turned into a pillar of salt. So it goes.”

– Kurt Vonnegut, “Slaughter-House Five”
