The A to Z of it.

In England, it is often said
We struggle through from A to Z;
Americans are not like me,
They walk the line from A to Z.
And when it comes to using Zs
Our cousins always feel at ease,
But we don’t like to lose our heads
Preferring Ss where they’ve Zs
But Z or Z it’s up to you
Which one is which? I’ve not a clue!

Or if you prefer some help …

In England, it is often said
We struggle through from A to Zed;
Americans are not like me,
They walk the line from A to Zee.
And when it comes to using Zees
Our cousins always feel at ease,
But we don’t like to lose our heads
Preferring Ss where they’ve Zeds
But Zed/Zee or Zee/Zed it’s up to you
Which one is which? I’ve not a clue!
