Some say Shakespeare placed commas

where he meant us to pause!

No right way or wrong way,

he made his own laws.

 

Rap music also

makes it’s own rules,

though a dash never followed

a full stop in high schools.

 

The problems with apostrophes

puts the mind in overload,

as confusing as dots and dashes

used in Morse code.

 

A semi-colon, not a buddy

of an exclamation mark.

High treason committed

when brackets used for a lark.

 

And when capitals miss-used,

it sends some on a rant.

And are italics just there 

to give meaning a slant?

 

So release all ideas

that into the mind, flood.

Don’t see as a barrier

grammar misunderstood.

 

For words better written

than left in the head.

Punctuation can follow

when manuscripts put to bed.

 

No point in an asterisk,

if the other’s gone west.

Thank God this is finished

and now off my chest.
