"I won't because you don't like me"
"I won't because you don't love me"
A subtle difference that makes
Today though we'll check on one word
"Won't" is our word, it's for "will not"
Ask me why not we say "willn't"
Blame it on the Brits, Old English
Then for "will not" they said "wonnot"
Which soon was contracted to "won't"

For her challenge she said: "Visit The Amazing and Interesting Fact Generator for a factoid, then build a poem around it. How, when, and why is up to you!" I chose writing on the word, "won't", and why we say that instead of "willn't". This fact was brought to life on a link on the side bar of the Generator.
