J is for Jiraffe.

J is for Jiraffe.
Everyone says Jiraffe should be spelt with a G.
Not me.
Think about it.

G
is,
Clearly,
A short, stubby, bad tempered, low letter,
For short, stubby, bad tempered, low things like
Guns and groans and gripe and grumble and grim
And gribble.
All hunched up in a grump on the ground.

Whereas,

Someone
as
slim,
tall,
elegant
long legged
long necked
long eyelashed
slow-pouring
Moving
Swaying
Reaching,
Stretching,
Someone as…as …
aspirational
As a Jiraffe,

Needs a J.

Nothing else to say.
