Some sonnets do not use the letter Z.
It's E Z to avoid, that much is true.
Unless you're writing sympathetically
About the plight of zebras in a zoo.
The sound of Z is quite another matter.
When S getz added to the end of wordz,
It often sounds like Z in standard chatter.
Our spelling system's strictly for the birds!
And if your accent leans toward the French,
Why, zen zee problem will be even worse.
So put the letter Z upon the bench,
But let its sound play freely through your verse.
Though forced to always trail behind the rest,
Z tries to catch up with a burst of zest.
