Is that your participle dangling,
...there upon the floor?
You look just like my grammar,
...have we ever metaphor?
Once you were an adjective,
...now you are a pronoun,
I ran in a pentameter,
...iambic not a noun,

Christmastime at homonym,
Some eggnog with some synonym,
Parsely, sage, rosemary, and rhyme,
I pay my syntax April time,

If odist seems nonsensical,
...sonnets will agree,
My object is adverbial,
...PRAISE BE MY SIMILE!

As I pet my doggy new,
What breed he is I wish I knew.
Perhaps he comes from Cape Cod, Mass.
Perhaps was raised on Kansas grass?
I think I'll name my doggy Ian,
He's OMG!  European!!!
