I just got chills! I occasionally look around the interwebs for information about languages that are disappearing or endangered...and I recall reading about one that has two fluent native speakers left...and they aren't speaking to each other due to some forgotten feud. There has to be fodder for a story there, right?

Yes...

>>I just got chills!<<

That's what the article did to me, hence the poem.

I do that too.

Yeah, I've heard that one, very sad. I may keep it in mind.
