Although a period has no real jurisdiction,
It has substantial reason and purpose.
Bringing to mind its’ weight in space,
as well as, on paper.
What this solitary mark does,
Enables a pause.
Indicating ultimate culmination, this mark competes, only with
the colon, leaving nothing more to say,
Unless it is to filch some jurisdiction from its’ fellow marks;
none of which, can lawfully tell.
This period reeks of authority!
