Pint-Sized Repudiation

Perhaps I ought to meter
and Celsius and liter.
Mayhap I ought to
kilogram and gram,
but the fact of the matter is
I was born in the U.S.A.
and frankly, my dear,
I just don’t give a dram.

    My kids know all about the metric system, which I suppose is important, but I just keep telling them - tell me in INCHES! ;)

    1. LOL Right there with you! A conversion of such proportions must require a generation (or two) to truly be successfully accomplished.
