I am grand

She wants to ban the word ‘grand’
She needs to understand,
that if we start to ban words
we are going backwards.

Fine, you want people to be more truthful,
maybe we do need to be less wasteful
of the English language. But often
‘I am grand’ is specifically chosen.

So instead of ‘We must ban…’
Lets try and find a plan
to stop the depression that sweeps
and causes our mothers to weep.
