Rebuts the Knee Sayers
"Distinguished linguists languish
In language of English ease.
In hot pot de "Chambers Revised" they gandered
And butchered in bags of "Nuttall's Standard".
But no flic with the "Shorter Ox. Dic. Of Eng."
Will find an n. sing for the back of the knees.
Poplitic, popliteal: both are adj. for the crease.
The ham remains nameless. This is rather hard cheese.
For stuff without title, it is said, cannot be -
Therefore, necks we have napes, also backbone and bottom,
But back of the knees, friends? So far - we ain't got 'em."
