Lessons in Less
 
Its like a new grammar
in which everything has to be declined.
 
Start with Class One.  'Agent Provocateur'.
'Safari'.  'Whiskey'.  'Opera'.
 
Class Two those standing orders.
Does Oxfam really need your twenty quid?
 
Class Three is for everyday nouns:
'Haircut' or 'Birthday card'.
 
In every case, the same ending.
Youd think it would be easy.
