Maybe I'm weird
Those nuns were strict and taught us
how to write and how to spell.
In fact I still can hear them say
a lesson I learned well:

‘I’ before ‘E’
Except after ‘C’
Or when sounding like ‘A’
As in neighbor and weigh


Unless the word is weird.

And so you have to wonder now
what else they got so wrong.
If ‘I’ and ‘E’ are out of place
then where do I belong?

Maybe I’m weird
