STFU Grammar Nazi!

"These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings." 

~ Colossians 2:22

 "Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language.

The limits of my language means the limits of my world." 
~ Ludwig Wittgenstein

"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice." 

~ T.S. Eliot

STFU Grammar Nazi!

Language evolves through improvisation;
Lending itself to radical rearticulation.
Clarity may be the currency of communication BUT
Ludic Telos underlines its alteration!

If Grammar Nazis had their way
Poiesis would be impossible.
They wish words would never sway
Yet such changes are unstoppable...

Neologisms are loosed into our lexicon
So often, we update dictionaries annually.
Ebonics plagues many an interaction online 
Scratching up turntables manually.

You see, a sound isn't the same as what it represents.
Even the letter isn't strict in any sense.
Leave rules to sorry fools stripped of innocence.
Expressions may fit situations (it depends)!
