Very cute.
So true! Then add profanities as an adjective, and it its heart-wrenching!
I love this poem!

Oh, how funny!

How creative! I love this!

You must be a teacher to have taken this fun avenue to display the topic. Very entertaining--made me smile.
01/14/10
So, so good.
My sentiments exactly!

Good fun material, but I hope you aren't one of those super pedantic types who would check a suicide note for spelling or syntax before you call any emergency services!!!

"Ain't that the truth?!"
Wonderfully written! I agree totally.

Well done, a most amusing poem.

Don't no nobody who would do that!

Awesome! Definitely an ow-worthy topic.

Clever, clever, clever! Love this EXPERTLY written poem!!
This writer ain't quite bad! And because s/he forgot to write us tautologies, me think s/he's not a bit fanatical but on the extreme end! A creative piece, brilliant, topical and didactic.

Every writer can relate to this! Love it!

Fantastic!! I'm certainly not perfect in the grammar department, but having a conversation with some people is enough to make me scream...thanks for venting my frustration so well!!
Very creative and perfect title.

Oh, yes, I feel your pain. Good fun.

Having 3 grandsons 16, 14, 13 and living in the South and attending public school...do I have to say more?
Sometimes, it's a foreign language.
Here's the thing, they are A students! But, their language is awful!
This is just so well written and very well done!

I do share your pain! Fun treatment of an irritating subject!

I snickered from beginning to end. This was priceless. Amen:)

So clever that it ought to be included in the front of all grammar books.
01/20/10
OW! I hope I've avoided some of these. LOL all the way thru as I read.

Hey Verna, you may be slow on italics, but on grammar you rock! Cute and clever

I can relate to this SO well, Verna. Bad grammar hurts--always. Very well done!

Great poem. I enjoyed it very much!!! Congratulations on your wins on both your level and Editor's Choice!!!

Yay, Verna!!!

I love it...I know a lot of writers who will sympathize with this!

I had a feeling this would do well. It is excellent! You should try to get it published.

This is so delightful! Growing up in a home with teacher parents, we learned early on about proper grammar. So, like you, I cringe when I hear folks who don't "follow the rules." You already had so many comments, I wasn't planning to add to the congestion (^&^), but after reading your poem, I couldn't resist. Adding this to my favorites list.

Love the poem! I could almost visualize myself singing along in my head.
01/26/10
LOL . . . This is great! I love it. I like the rhythm and the flow. Congratulations.

Oh, wait a minute. This is why you get migraines when you read my writings. LOL

Verna, this is priceless. And it's very punny, too...doesn't "bite" at all!
