Who Are They?


Brian Campbell

Brian is the father of a friend of mine and he hails from Pembrokeshire

Who are these people who decide words?
Like things that fly they call birds?
Who said more than one foot should be called feet,
and decided a lavatory should have a toilet seat?
And then there’s hippopotamus, who dreamt up that,
and decided cricket should be played with a bat?
Who was it who decreed jam is kept in a jar,
and the thing we drive around in should be called a car?
And who said we do drawings using a pencil,
and do all our cooking with a kitchen utensil?
Don’t get me started on colours. Who thought up yellow?
And who was it who said you can call a bloke a fellow?
Do they just think up words and draw them out of a hat?
It seems to me it all comes down to that.
So, if the job is advertised, please give me a tweet.
I reckon that position would be right up my street.
