Identity Crisis

Eithne Reynolds . . . Writing

On my blog today my poem is ‘just a little bit of silliness really’ as Peter Llewlyn says in that beautiful film Finding Neverland.

Why is a chilli, called a chilli

Especially when it’s hot?

Why are things called things

That perhaps they are not?

Maybe a banana really is a pear

And what about a circle

Maybe it’s a square.

Who gets to think up all the

Two hundred and twenty-eight thousand,

One hundred, and thirty two words

In the Oxford  Dictionary?

I really think it’s quite unfair

That not one belongs to me.
