Stop Signs


Our literary stop signs

are periods

we use them

to end a single thought

a comma will not do it

a pause is simply not enough

like rolling through a stop sign

it does no good to simply

tap the brake

do not yield to commas

we need the boldness of a period

like a bright red stop sign

to come to a complete stop

turn on the signal

then proceed to the next thought

turn the corner

watch your speed

slow down

Read Safely.

Stop you crazy word
I am the language cop
Did you not see the stop sign?
Wot? No, rhymes have no stops

dk he has no problems
He's used a sorta prose
Without him using full stops
I don't know how that goes

Now Kate she agonises
When to use them D
Maybe she should try rhyming
No stops, like you and me 😎
