It’s National Punctuation Day!
Jackie alerted me to this fact, and to the tradition of creating a poem for your favorite mark, a week or so ago. Because today seemed so far off, I didn’t heed her warning until too late. It’s September 24th and I am without a punctuation poem.
Here’s what I have so far…and I’m giving up:
how they abuse you
how they disrespect you
you are strong enough to stand alone
in a field of letters you can elevate
yet they mock your importance
duplicating you by twenty
So, can anyone finish this? Or do you have your own poem to share? Or just want to weigh in on your favorite punctuation mark?
