Overheard at the Linguist Society


And now I proceed to accede to my needs

To secede from my versage and water the seeds.

Seeds, you’ll concede, are the words of a breed

That have –eed as succeed and intercede’s –ede.

I’ll antecede here that I hope I succeed

Lest you supersede me and I have to cede.
