"Your" for "You're"?!

"Your" for "You're"?!

A Poem by ThisVivian

This ABAB poem has 100 words (except for that last line) and is about my annoyance at how some folks can't understand "you're".


Of course we ought to learn,

while attending our schools.

That should have us concern,

for there are so many rules!


Do you know what “you’re” mean(s)?

It is both “you are”, combined!

Those words'd make up a team:

can't people keep that in mind?!

Teachers teach in English class,

having us properly studyin' a lot.

"Your" for "you're" can harass,

ergo, see that we are taught!


Sheesh, it is really, just so weird:

some peeps cannot understand!

Folks need their heads cleared,

since grammar's a command!

Guys, just please stop doing that:

grasp the matter to put apostrophes!!!

Clever write - too true the art of grammatical correctness has been lost to many! Loved your take on this theme :-)
