The Curse of Grammar

The curse of grammar

The curse of grammar includes spelling
Witches and wizards stewed it from far away
They’d like to make your heads sway
They used eyes of cats
Boiling them in copper pots
The refined magic brew is spread as chemtrails
Unclearly set spelling rules make us clumsy
Uncertain article rules make us crazy
Who cares if countable or uncountable?
Only people who are grindable or findable




My native tangue is Japanese, and I am not a English native speaker.
 I suffer from English grammar very much.

Felicia, remember that it doesn't matter if there's occasionally an extra apostrophe. Use it to your advantage. Spin the oddities of grammar onto their heads and leave us hanging with a twist that we should have seen coming. Push the odd plurals to their limits. But above all else - write. When you write, you are exposed to the world, and show your unique experiences redemption in poetry. So write. I'll be watching. ~Blue
