I was reading through some papers
(It was really quite a stack)
Cos I’ve had them for a week, now,
And the students want them back
But then… a stray apostrophe
Was seared into my soul,
Unleashing horde’s of demon’s,
Till I fully lost control
It took a bit of doing
But I talked myself back down
Read the news at [site redacted]
For the latest from my town
But then… that stray apostrophe,
A simple, plain, mistake
So many good example’s,
Who could know that I would break?
In the comic’s, in the headline’s
In the manual’s for my car!
On the price tag’s, in my vision’s
If I’m looking–there they are!
Those fucking stray apostrophe’s!
Intentional, I know!
They wan’t to see me broken,
And they know the way to go.
