the grammar police

every time you say your instead of you’re

i die a little bit inside

each misuse of its and it’s

makes me want to gag

unless you have a good reason

(like if you’re the next gertrude stein)

don’t omit your punctuation

learn like picasso to follow the rules

before you break them all to bits

can’t you get that through your thick skull?

every time you say you don’t believe in grammar

somewhere a language-lover dies

don’t make that be me or i’ll kill you first
