Dictionary Day (Limerick)

It’s National Dictionary Day, created in honor of Noah Webster’s birthday.

I attempt to learn new words each day–
At least one, sometimes two, but they stray;
Seems as new words are learned,
The old ones are spurned:
“You’re evicted!” those brain-hoggers bray.

    Noah Webster could be sorely tried
    By wordsmith wannabes at his side:
    “Make ‘s-h’ from ‘s-u’?
    Only ‘sugar’ will do!”
    “Are you sure?” Webster gently replied.
