The reason is not because.
In fact, it never was.
The reason is, and will always be
That, which we can all agree
Makes much more sense.
In because’s defense,
I sometimes say it, too.
But I try, as should you
To catch and revise
When it starts to arise.

The reason is not because,
Because of what because does.
Because is a conjunction
Whose primary function
Is to begin an adverbial clause,
According to grammar laws
It is not a predicate nominative.
Plus, it’s quite repetitive
Beware, when you start to chat,
The reason is, and will always be, that.
