Learn To Tell Too, From To, From Two

You too, can get a “go to” attitude

Those of us who are word nerds
Feel like your use of them, sometimes, is blurred

Between to, too, and two, for instance,
Learn indeed, there is a difference

Too, you can easily recall, has three letters: three
And three, in number, is closer to the word “very”

“But,” you whine, “I am very tired, just can’t add an extra “O.”
“Using ‘very’ instead of too, makes my point, too, though

Unhelpful, “too” means “also”, (I too, feel your frustration)
Like “very,” “also” has four letters, so attend this information

The other “to” with just two letters, is similar to “go”
As in, “I will go TO the store, except ‘go’ rhymes with toe.

“Go” and “to” look like they should rhyme, but they do not
But use the go and to rubric — just give it some thought

Finally, two, is a number, “we two, are going to the store, too.
So, it’s best you learn arithmetic, if you haven’t got a clue
