    Perfect! ! ! Lovely and great use of the punctuation in demonstrating your point and meaning! Fun and rhyming but with depth :) ... Now, if only there's a poem like this for the grammar of you're, they're, too, and loose, among others! ! ! Very enjoyed :) (Report) Reply

    A great poem without punctuation: a poet's prerogative, I do believe. Voices my exact feelings.
    Well done.

    Yeah - i agree with Murdock - it's really interesting; flowing and you have done outstandingly well in the field of exellence! ! ! (Report) Reply

    I'm telling you this really gets me. It's the seamless flow, uncompromised by a rhyming necessity to alter meaning. It's a technical masterpiece to me. I'm sure more than one will tell you this. (Report) Reply
