Desecration of the English language

Me/him/her or them

can  never DO anything…

they can only be done


They cannot talk

or go

or live or speak…

23 years ago

I desperately tried to explain

this concept to my daughter-in-law,

admittedly only 18 at the time,

but the mother of my grandchildren

all the same.

She never would embrace the concept-

and so today, I grapple with how to dissect

the sentence

” him hit his head and had to go to the hospital”

to HER children.

I was left void of an answer

aside from ” him did?”

Bastardization or desecration

they sift out equally-

when the language goes we are lost…
