'Super' was shot down in the night,
'Special' died before it could fight,
'Extreme' sold out, and dropped the "e",
The language is not what it used to be
'Magnificent''s a hermit in a cave,
'Ecstasy' is home only at raves,
'Fabulous' is a new word for 'gay',
Which succumbed, turned into slang
'misappropriate' is little more than legalese,
'chink' became a racist slur, now used on the Chinese,
'Bitch' is now considered fit for every part of speech,
'Ironic' is now a word with meaning out of reach
'facts' and 'opinions' and 'rights' and 'wrongs'
Mean even less than the words to a half-remembered song,
When 'justice' and 'sanity' exist only beside 'in'
Is it too much a stretch to say our language was done in?
