The Odious Apostrophe

The Odious Apostrophe

 

Apostrophe, Apostrophe,

or should I say catastrophe?

You make me nervous, angry, mean,

You’re Satan’s punctuation scheme.

I put you in and take you out,

Confusion reigns, along with doubt.

Unlike the period or comma,

You thrive on messiness and drama.

English would be much less rotten,

If you could only be forgotten.

I grew up in a big house, with a big family, and a big imagination. My writing began back in junior high school, and over the years has included unpublished stories, music, poetry, and drama scripts. I enjoy reading and writing in several genres, including science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, and romance. Reading, for me, has always been a way to relax and escape real life for a little while. For that reason, I endeavor to write stories that are interesting, generally upbeat, and have a happy ending. If you enjoy my work, I would love to hear from you.
