Split the infinitive, yes or no?
Do these two parts have a lasting bond?
Verbs-- to infinitive and beyond.
Many get hung up on the word hanged
Donâ€™t let death by rope get you harangued
And can a sentence begin with â€œandâ€
Or should this practice really be banned?
Who, or whom, it may concern
Loquacious, fashioned, or taciturn
Can a novelist use lofty prose?
Or disguise their words in trendy clothes?
Should sentences end with in or by?
Causing the grammar police to sigh
Should writers use an Oxford comma?
One left off led to courtroom drama.
Between â€œyou and Iâ€ or â€œyou and meâ€
This is as baffling as it can be
Are two negatives okay to use
Or in a clause do they just confuse?
Disputes have raged over the ages,
Debated by linguistic sages
So whether purist or more carefree,
Letâ€™s just all agree to disagree.
*The court case was Kevin Oâ€™Connor v. Oakhurst Dairy
