Three is Axed!

Daily Prompt: Three Letter Words
Write an entire post without using any three-letter words.

Dear readers,

In a rare show of bi-partisanship, Congress voted to outlaw three, which could be positive or negative depending on your perspective. In support of fair, unbiased reporting, we have included some differing perspectives below.

Feminist: “This is a momentous moment, a great leap forward! Finally, a chance to rewrite history in each person’s image that reflects America’s diversity: “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men everyone is equal.”

New immigrant: “I am learning this English. It is good. Less words to learn.”

Kindergarten Teacher: “I do not know have no idea what this world is coming to. What will early readers do? They so depend on three letter words to build literacy. Show your support with these bumper stickers:  ‘Bring back three. It helps us read.’ ‘Read, baby, read can’t happen without three.'”

Coffee Entrepreneur: “We have come full circle. We have thrown down the last vestige of British colonialism. America’s future is coffee, only coffee.”

Forlorn Poet:

Plucky three is axed.
Our language forevernow
taxed by loss of this digit,
once sweet lucky number. Many
thought it a nuisance, a disturbance
of crowd when it only craved company.
I will forevernot slumber. Though I
cannot blog, tweet or speak of
thee aloud, memory will be my shroud.
