Its And It's - An Iq Test? (By Rachel, My Kindred Spirit) - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

It's often difficult to see
The much abused apostrophe.
Its key is way off to the side
Sometimes it's NOT there for its ride.

Possessive? Plural? Get it right!
Contraction's simple day or night.
It is is it's and its belongs
To someone, somewhere for a song.

A careless writer must do more
To improve her language score.
There's no excuse for such a twist
It's simple to see where it fits.

Blame the keyboard for its speed
Quill and ink made slower reads.
'No excuse! ' again, I said..........
One more time my face is red.

    Thank you, Sherrie. Always good to hear from you. Talking about a small mind is not easy when we both have big hearts and minds. There are far too many people who are so mixed up within their protoplasm that only God could love them. They cannot allow others to exist and express themselves in their individuality, hence the attacks. Attacks coming out of the safety of dark places, identity concealed and not very smart but pound-foolish methinks.
    As you know, I appreciate you and I only wish you would read my erotic poems* of late.

    Best to you,
    H (jr)

    and
    Back To Shaving

    Ahhh, Haines, Jr., I miss your brilliance and your verve at the forum...I should follow your example, and not go slumming, but hey, I do so enjoy a strong reaction over trivialities. Nice one. Love this. (Report) Reply
