Poems are fun to write, poems are fun to read, language is compelling and so is this sentence. Hmmm, I think we have a run-on sentence.
Aha, so we do, christyb!
Pssst, I think christyb is in a silly mood today.
Pssst, it’s not much of a secret today.
Okay, okay. Today’s poem is silly and it’s about run-on sentences. We have all read them, and we have likely all written at least one (or two).
Run Away Wordplay
The run-on sentence runs away from
Here and over to there, where
No punctuation marks exist, only
Fattening lines that stretch the waist of
Vocabulary-dense language, while
The appetite for length is greater than
Minds can digest.
Punctuate now. Exhale.
