  1. Yo! Strunk and White they sounded kinda nice,
    So damn good that ah listen to it twice,
    I here what they say, ’bout keepin’ it tight
    So I really gonna try an’ get ma pen down right!

    • Haha, nice, Kim!

      It is rather a catchy rhythm, isn’t it? Glad you enjoyed it in my absence of post. : )

      • Arrgh! Horror! Lack of attention to detail/editing – I shoulda writ ‘hear’ not ‘here’ …

        Strunk and White, dey woulda hada fright,
        De boy didn’t get his pen down right.
        He didn’t do da readin’, now his heart is bleedin’
        it’s evidential now, ‘cos it’s in plain sight.

        • Aww, don’t be hard on yourself. Happens to the best of us even when we know better. I keep accidentally putting apostrophes where they don’t belong – where I KNOW they don’t belong. Nevertheless, there they appear, and I’m lucky if I notice and delete them before whatever I’m writing becomes permanent.

          Of course, if it REALLY bothers you, I do have the power to edit your comment and delete this one. : )
