english is a funny language

We’ll begin with a Box, and the plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese.
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice.
Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.

If the plural of man is always men,
Why shouldnt the plural of be pan be called pen?
If I speak of my foot show you my feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
