Everyone loves a pedant so
Now I'll play that well-met role
To pass this useful knowledge on along:
Merriam-Webster is solely the
Principal published authority
On our American English lexicon.
Love it or hate it—
Cold or hot react—
Believe it or not—
Took or left, It's a fact.
There is no English Academy.
The rules are not objective.
You will serve self and others best
When Merriam-Websterwardly selective.
