Bad Grammar

Grammar

When it comes to grammar
I always break the rules
I am from the old school
I never adhere to the “do and don’t
 I am a devious character indeed... oh! guess what!

 My Dali lama teaching
Was never influential because
Nothing else matters to me

I am who I am 
Prose and complete
And most of the time
 Politically or grammatical incorrect
Whatever, or whoever I am.
 I am a poetess with a mean ***** switch

my main focus is to get my point across
Artful and prose; I play the devil’s advocate
Guilty as charge, I am in charge of my anthology 
No outsiders can never curve my pen
To construct a well written poem

When I am on a roll I never stop to compose
Or worry about starting my sentences with “and our but”
Even if it makes me clunky; no biggie that me 
I have no intention of offering a toast
or pretend I am your host at your table.

I am the artful dodger, I know how to submit and watch
As my pen become public enemy number one.
                    (mostly to some)

Sorry my master! My mentor, Dali lama (my conscience)
...................................................................
May I examine my mind in all actions?
And as soon as a negative state occurs,
Since it endangers me and others,
May I firmly face and avert it. :  Quote Dali Lama

    Elvis Presley would not sound quite right singing "You aren't anything but a hound dog" Sometimes bad grammar sounds better. Good poem.

    Art in any form will have it's critics and admirers. One should write what suits them. And be driven by their own inspiration and not bow to convention for the sake of attention. Write what's in your heart.

    It’s a beauty on a theme like 'Grammar'. Excellent Poem illustrating your likes and dislikes for bad grammar. In poetry a margin should be given for the feelings to come on unrestrained. Still I agree that rules are rules and it must be followed to give perfection to any creative writing. Thank you for your kind words on my Poem. With best wishes…Ravindra
