    A renaissance man and wordman of impeccable wit. This is how a review of your work would read if it were written by me. I enjoyed all of your works. Thanks for your poetry Mr. Cooper

Best Poem of Stanley Cooper

Punctuation

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.

Colons: are sometimes used
To act as sentencing braces
Colons called semi; help us fuse
Connecting multiple phrases

To combine a compound adjective
The hyphen-comes into play
Question marks? are for the inquisitive
While commas, show delay

If writing is your avocation
And hope ...

Linguistic Anguish

I suffer so with linguistic anguish
At corruption of our English language
Spouting double negative pollution
Ascertains no positive conclusion

There ain’t no sense, I have to say
In speaking in this kind of way
I seem to find it most confounding
Why double negatives remain abounding
