A sign in [the cafe] proclaimed a table to be “REVERVED.” Seriously?
Another colleague, Aaron, wrote:
Reserved for someone revered? Or just verved multiple times?
It’s almost like reserved, reversed!
Perhaps. It was reserved, but now it’s not, so the situation, one might say, has been reverved.
Then I contributed this:
A sign on a table, “Reverve”
Was written by someone with nerve
Was the writer just spelling-averse?
Or did they intend we’d converse
On the subjects “reverse” and “revere”
While away from our jobs we would veer?
Well, no more! I do hereby aver
I’m done with “reverve” fore-ver
