Zee…No! Zed…No! Zee

A to Z they ran the race

Hit the finish line

Exuberant, jubilant with a sense of

Achievement, they hugged one another

And grabbed the juice

Team effort paid off, they won the race

Parents happy, promised a movie and more candies

Community sports day ended on a high

When one youngster said, excuse me

And his team paused to look

Can we please say ‘Zee’ as in Zee TV

And stop splashing spittle saying Zed

But that’s how it’s said Zed, said his mate

Nope, its Zee, joined in another

My teacher said its Zed, pitched in another

The group split, juices down, candies forgotten

My teacher is right, no mine, no ours

They screamed

No candies, if you’ll fight, said parents

We don’t care

How dare he accuse our teacher!

  4. ahh Zee and Zed. I used to say Zee for the US clients, but after relocating to Sydney I have to learn saying Z again. They give real weird looks if you say Zee 😛
