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,
It's time for my sestina,
...oxymoron I've been called,
Parsing gerunds on my forehead,
...kerfuffle, going bald,
I had a preposition,
...conjugation was my aim,
Redundantly intransitive,
...possessive she became,
My car is discombobulated,
...did puncuate my tire,
Alliteration with a match,
...to meter my desire.

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!

Tim, I think you just passed english 1A,  with a splash of graduate honor's humor, you are a pro.

CLEVER, and wickedly funny to an x-english
'major'!  (No pop quizzes, please!)  I usually write stuff better suited to the
DARK PASSIONS forum, but I prefer to post
here for the levity...Thanx.

Mike, this poem is Capital! Superlative! Not only that, it makes a lot of tense! I know, I know, it's past my bedtime...time to split infinitives...goodnight!

Glad you all enjoyed.  Claire, would split infinitives with you anytime.  Dr. Moose... er...  better not respond to your flimsy whimsy.  Martie, why didn't I have any teachers respond like that while I was still in school?   Denise, suthern, Janet Marie,
Corinne and serenity...  thank you muchly for the gracious replies.
