That's what it's like to be X,

Said the letter Y.


But why, Y naught?

I thought but to whine ought.


Because there's a lot to allot, great scot-

An X that ain't ought is one big shot

Wouldn't it not?


But that thought,

I, who did thought

Wouldn't it not be ought

If we didn't think if that was ought


Y fought and vied hot,

But fought for I to buy ought:

Ain't there not

A spec of truth in every wide thought?


Between all that was sought,

That I did got.

Aye, I finally thought.


Man, fuck the two of you,

Said the letter X.
