In Hmong, many words begin the same way
But last letter determines everything
Screw up the last letter and

Fish turns into salt
Horse into human
Sour into penis

You may like the word nyiam
But if you substitute j for m, your word transforms into money
Tack on a g for nyiag
and suddenly the money is stolen
A girl may start out as ntxhais
But neglect the s
and she becomes nothing more
than the water
left over
from cooking rice
