Happy National Punctuation Day (Limerick)

Happy National Punctuation Day (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

When you punctuate, please don’t be rash.
Over-use can turn prose into ash.
And a comma misplaced
Lays your writing to waste.
Mark my words … or your readers shall dash.

(National Punctuation Day is celebrated yearly on September 24th.)

    Nice one!

    I propose more semi-colons for everyone!

    I substitute dashes for commas [which have many uses but dashes have but one]. I once saw “virgule” on a test…just another word for “slash,” e.g., “I’m an actress virgule waitress” [actor/wait person?]. Hah!
