U wot m8?

U don’t talk proper.

I most c'rtainly doth!

P'rhaps t is thee.

Wot u tryin say?

That I talk wrung?

I am not implying,

I knoweth!

U sayin I’m stupid or sumthin?

Ugh! Slimy mooncalf!

U mad, no cap!

I am sick when I do look on thee.

U make me sick 2 m8.

I’m m're sophisticat'd,

Thou Speak in tongues.

Dunno wot u say,

But I talk write.

Concur to disagreeth,

Living centuries apart.

U can’t change my mind m8,

Liketh thee with I.
