Treasure Island

The Onlys


My classic cracker
only fits around
the pointy end
of the Gen Y,
and only gets the job done
a fraction slower.

With only these onlys
I persist
with my cracker;
but have been known
to have said:
'I fear walnut Gen Z.'

    Unfortunately, Sesame Street is responsible for all the little Gen Z's saying 'zee' instead of 'zed'. I made up my own version of an alphabet song to a different tune which I sang to my children when they were young and finished with a strong ZED, but I think we sticklers are fighting a losing battle.
