Q never Quite Queues up
Most people do not have a single clue
how hard it is to find a name with ‘Q’
Tom, Dick and also Harry
yeah, Radheshyam and Parry
but Q doesn’t queue up, no can do.
Did Q ever give you a Greek god?
name a famous Roman Caesar? a cephalopod?
We can moan and grumble
but Q is not an example
of a letter that is abundant and broad.
Where exactly does Q come from?
Search from Greek Omega to Sanskrit Om
You won’t see it anywhere -
magicked from Latin n thin air
and the upstart’s made itself quite at home!
Let me give you some facts, plain and cold:
Q’s the second least common letter, all told.
Less than one percent of words
where Q is seen and heardit clearly believes that silence is gold.
And no guesses for what's the least common letter - that makes me shake in my shoes too!
Does anyone else here shiver and shake, Quiver and Quake when the time comes for the terrible-two baddy shoes (Qu) letters? Why does Q come in always coupled with U? What are your top Q-tips for getting over this speed bump in the A-Z?
