February - pronounce the 'ru'
Often left off in hurried speak,
As human tongues are prone to do.
Easy to twist tie tongue in cheek.
Named for Februus, Roman god
Of purification of sin,
That yearly got stuck in the bod,
A spring cleaning would be akin.
Februus later changed his name
To Pluto of the underworld,
But February stayed the same,
Plutoary never unfurled.
February - shortest in day,
But longest mispronounced to say.
