For the sake of the fairies


It's important that everyone tries
To capitalise their pronoun I's
For when a person doesn't
A grammar fairy dies

When a child writes out the alphabet
for practice so they don't forget
All fairies are quite safe
(phew, you were worried there, I bet!)

obviously it would be absurd
if the i was in a word.
Too many would have passed
6, in this stanza you've just heard

Forgetting at a sentence start
Well, that would stop a fairies heart
Correct, 'for its to late and
Reverse their cardiac infarct!

I hope now that you realise
you'll never dot the pronoun I's
It's you! so make it count
and save those little lives!

    Yes, I suppose it is each of us individuals, and I should be one body; not the split two of i. I really liked that, I figure I wasn't expecting it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
