Oxford Comma

By Grace M. Brodhurst-Davis

Oh! Such dilemma!
Over Oxford comma
Old country of mine
‘Lose it not!’
Others say,
‘In the gutter!
Too much clutter!’
Haters love the brevity
Lovers, the history
Or perhaps utility?
This serial comma,
Such an innocent fella,
Breathes such life
In naysayers,
Yet breeds
So strongly
Among players
This English mystery,
To everyone’s worry,
Is still very much alive
In World’s ever-changing drive 

For T.S. Poetry contest using "O" (#Oxford)
