ITS DANGLING AGAIN,
OUT THERE ALL ALONE,
IT’S HANGING BY A COMMA
THE NOUNS ARE TAKING NOTICE,
THE VERBS ARE RUNNING SCARED,
AND ALL IS GONE TO PIECES
FOR THE DANGLING OF A WORD.
THEY NEVER FAIL TO NOTICE,
THIS COMPANY SO SUBLIME,
THE WAY ONE SPEAKS
THE WAY ONE’S HEARD,
AND NOW I NEED A VERB.
I HIDE MY SHAME AWAY
BUT STILL I THINK THEY’VE SEEN.
NONPLUSSED I MUST REMAIN,
WITH PREPOSITIONS NOW ASKEW
CONJUNCTIONS LOSING HOLD
THE INTERJECTION STANDS CONFUSED.
ALL BECAUSE A PARTICIPLE
IS DANGLING AS A WORD
Love this! It might just be the perfect post for writers.
hahaha and I don’t understand the mechanics of grammer! I was never taught it. Go figure!
I am terrible when it comes to grammar. I’m glad no one grades my posts.
It’s not how well you speak that is important, it’s how well you are understood.
I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s
both educative and amusing, and let me tell you,
you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something
that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found
this in my hunt for something regarding this.
Thank you so much! You’re right not enough people care. They should. I am constantly amazed that we can understand each other at all.
