On David Crystal's "Story of Be" with a shout out to Margaret Serious



Author’s note: The following verse is in honor of the 300th post of ChicagoNow’s own Margaret Serious.


In my heart I am fond of “to be”.

In the present it validates me.

Its infinitive state

Is the Good Lord’s mandate

For all humans throughout history.

  • Thank you so much. Appropriately, Crystal includes God "in the beginning" of the book, in "the existential be." That definitely covers The Great I Am.
