Distaste for the Declension of Latin Pronouns

Further to an exchange with lproven in another place, I just wrote the following:
    I could never tell Hic
    From the other one, Ille --
    I know one makes me sick
    And the other one's silly.
    As for Is, Ea, Id,
    I wish that I'd hid 'em:
    I'd sooner be rid
    Of aforementioned Idem.
