Comma happy


There is a problem, I face,

One that I cannot erase.

It is in my blood, in my genes.

One that, I could have not foreseen.

I AM.. COMMA HAPPY!


Whenever I write, or type

My teacher looks and gripes

To many commas! are you insane!

You’ve got commas written on your brains!

Every essay, every story written

By commas many, it is smitten.

It’s a full international invasion, of grammar

Hitting hard with it’s dictatorial hammer.

I am.. Comma happy.


Things are written in my head

Stories, poems essays or dramas

The similarities of all, one I cannot stall, is that they all include a full helping of commas!

I am in need of deep therapy and aid

Before the commas go on another raid

Every time my grade dips from too many grammatical mistakes

My heart and soul keens and aches.

Before it is too late, before I pick up pencil or pen

Help! Before I comma again!
