Ode to the Comma

Oh comma, there’s nowhere you haven’t lain

On park benches, sailboats, and billboards

In pudding vats, vestries, and pain

Slut. 

Sluts know what they want, though

And I’ve always liked the lascivious

Deriving great pleasure

Repeatedly, with conviction

Spreading lusty connections

To things proper and prim

To ideas rank and fetid

Through righteous, pious, principled people

Using you to spread their judgements

Suckers

If they only knew you like I do

You sexy bitch

Never satisfied with pairs

Ménage à trois is just a starting point for you 

The more the merrier, no?

Oh, yes

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!

Give it to me Oxford style

And now I’m spent 

I love you, slutty comma
