Oh, Rather!

About words, well, one word in particular.

Why do I naturally write
Rather than
Instead of the instead of
I would say?

I don’t speak like
Oh, rather – what!
Some posh twat
So why do I
Write like it?


Gets me in a twist
Somewhat of a lather
I’d rather be a failure
Instead of known
As a snobby typer
