Multiple Transgressions

A stuffy old English teacher,

I admit to being culpable

Of also being a preacher

About the misuse of “multiple.”


Now, one can have many romances

Or contract numerous diseases.

One can take a lot of chances

And have several nephews and nieces.


But “multiple” is not the word.

Such violations make me gingery,

And when such nonsense has occurred,

I threaten multiple injuries.
