Wild One Fantasy

Mildred said, from Old English ‘ongegn’,
“What are you against? ”

Johnny countered in kind from ‘gietan’,
“Whadda you got? ”

She used Latin
and said, “What are you contra? ”

He said 'possess'
instead of 'got'.

She said, “That's 'own',
‘āgan’ in Old English.”

He said, “Alright then,
I'm ongegn ev'rythin’ you āgan.”
