I'm unsure if the name 'Ptolemy'
Is said intact with the 'p'.
Takes a mental toll on me
That's just my psychology.
Happily 'Psychology' is no mess
It's clearly said with an 's' !
Also clear are 'Pluto' , 'Plural', 'Penal' and 'Polly'
But what sets the clock back - by golly ! -
Are words like 'Psephology' and 'Psyche'
Which always arouse a 'Christ !' or a 'Crickey !'
Also I'll surely stand in queue
If they ever teach a class on 'q' :
A confused letter that you can say
Either with a 'Q' or with a 'K'
The name Qantas and the word Quill
Can't be told - behold ! -
From the name Kansas and the word Kill
But what is a really smooth sail
Is : Don't bother with 'Quail'.
I am glad to state
That it's on my plate
Plate - the P intact and cool
Now that my mouth is full.
