English for Beginners
(Part 2)

Welcome back my alien friend
Like a hole in your head
I hope I didn't bore you.
This time we will lessen the lesson
We will talk about plurals
They are easy, just add an 's'.
So spouse becomes spouses
And house becomes houses
Pronounced houzes.
Your turn now a mouse becomes?
No you got it wrong, mice
Possum is possums
flagellum is flagella
But alga is one and algae is more
And the plural die is dice
The circus is a ring
though a boxing ring is square
please don't despair
visit all the circuses and see with two eyes
two eyes? there is no such plural surely
until radius becomes radii

Again I beg do not despair
The plural "s" is still there
Alive and well, as in boxes and foxes and oxen
And as you go to sleep don't forget
To count the sheep
