Words - Part Three - Ode on Phlegm

I know it's disgusting
But I had a thought
My head is just busting
In dilemma it's caught
From whence did this word come
It is a true gem
To spell it you go some
The word friend is PHLEGM
Don't call me a big jerk
And make a huge fuss
But why is it hard work
To spell a word thus
For surely it would mean
The same thing to them
Who'd just eaten ice cream
And had a throat full of FLEM!
English is hard
Without making it worse
And I am no bard
So here ends my verse.
