The Kidlitosphere's Poetry Friday: Macaronic Verse

According to H.L. Yelland's A Handbook of Literary Terms, macaronic verse is "humorous verse in which there is a mixture of languages, especially English and Latin."

Here is my submission for the "Monday Poetry Stretch" challenge at The Miss Rumphius Effect blog:

I have a lingua for lengua.
I got a schwa for bar mitzvah.
But not even I
Can use mein old eye
For decoding Joyce's Wörte.
