Is it any wonder our youth struggle to read

To write, construct a sentence

When everything is abbreviated

In schools, the above list goes on

Teachers even get codes on their names

Is there nothing that we won’t shorten.

This language is quite familiar

But to those who struggle, to decode life

We just zapped you out of understanding

One acronym too many.

  1. I used to teach computer science in college. One of my first “lessons” was TLAs and FLAs (three letter acronyms and four letter acronyms). It was nearly overwhelming. Social media, etc. has made it worse, and they apply to everything. We’ve forgotten how to speak and write in English.

    • I remember turning up to a new job and my boss (who worked 1500kms north) would send me daily emails full of SMS speak. I had no idea what he was telling me to do most of the time!
