I am far from a grammar Nazi, but if you’re going to tell someone they’re an idiot (or otherwise insult their intelligence), at least learn the difference between your and you’re. :oP

Speaking English is not hard
Though one could hardly tell.
Just walk this nation, from coast to coast
And you’ll experience linguist’s Hell.

In one place, a metaphor
Would make but perfect sense.
But then there’s the misunderstanding
That makes the mood too tense.

When in Rome, speak like Texans
It’s possible to start a fight.
Whether or not, it’s what you mean,
You may not say it right.
