A lament stemmed from learning Free Verse poetry while also taking an advanced grammar class

Grammar Games

A subject here

  Will put a verb phrase here.

Add a comma,

  And don’t forget to punctuate.

A semi-colon marks one sentence

  From another sentence phrase;

They are important.

Oh! Don’t forget your interjections.

  They add that much needed dramatic flair.

Never deviate from these rules—unless…

You are a poet.

Then, by all means

Split sentences

  In threes

Maybe even fours.

Don’t worry about adding commas in fact

  Forget to punctuate

There’s no such thing as too long, so

  Ramble a sentence


And on,

And on,

And on

Because the rules

  They don’t matter.

The rules 

Will be thrown




No one can blame you

  If only

You call it
