A Response to the prompt “Exaggeration

Author’s note: This is meant to be an melodramatic mockery of those who rail against the way the internet and technology is “destroying” the English language. I don’t actually believe this kind of silliness.

It is a crime and I’m lit’rally dead:
Murder most foul of our mother tongue.
I can’t figure out what you just said;
It is a crime and I’m lit’rally dead.
Maybe I’ll switch and speak French instead.
Murderers! All of the ignorant young!
It is a crime and I’m lit’rally dead:
Murder most foul of our mother tongue.
