Best Poem of Stanley Cooper


Punctuation, stepchild tool of writing
Does not get it’s write-ful due
If we stopped this literate slighting
It would be a literal coup

The period we see as a dot
Has such a vital essence
The reason we use it a lot
Is to forestall a run-on sentence.

To act as sentencing braces

Question marks? are for the inquisitive
While commas, show delay

If writing is your avocation
And hope ...

Of the future that would be
