The Plural Poem

Fill in the missing nouns in the funny poem about the Plural of Nouns

No wonder the English language is so very difficult to learn.
I sometimes wonder how we manage to communicate at all!

We'll begin with a box and the plural is   .
But the plural of   should be oxen, not oxes.

The one fowl is a   but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of   should never be meese.

You may found a lone mouse or a whole set of   ,
Yet the plural of   is houses not hice.

If the plural of   is always called men,
Why shouldn't the plural of   be called pen?

If I speak of a   and you show me your feet,
And I give you a  , would a pair be called beet?

If one is a tooth and a whole set are  ,
Why should not the plural of booth be called beeth?

Then one may be that and three would be those,
Yet   in the plural wouldn't be hose.
And the plural of   is cats and not cose.

We speak of a   and also of brethren,
But though we say  , we never say Methren,

Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and ,
But imagine the feminine  , shis and shim,

So English, I fancy you will all agree,
Is the funniest language you ever did see.
