Seems we all pretty much agree. English is a great language, and we're lucky to be native speakers and have an easy command of it without having to struggle for it.

They were talking on NPR the other day about this famous poem by Gwendolyn Brooks, so it was top of mind:


THE POOL PLAYERS.
SEVEN AT THE GOLDEN SHOVEL.

We real cool. We
Left school. We

Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We

Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We

Jazz June. We
Die soon.
