A new reader pointed out to me that all the commas in my writes made him dizzy.
I told him they make me dizzy, too!
So here's the real story, Richard Orey!

I added the last line after reading Kathy's clever review. ha ha ~~ Rock


Well, I'm told I have a disease, or was it just a tease?
I even asked my momma, she said: yup, you've got a bad case of  miscomma

I try to put them where I think they really ought to be
but those commas keep showing up everywhere,
for all the world to see.

I asked my doctor what he thought that I should do
He laughed and said, It's like a hiccup, just hold your breath as you write, until you turn blue

I didn't like that advice, so I asked my dad,
he said I don't have a clue, son
but whatever it is,  you've really got it bad

I guess it's just a stray gene, from your mother's side
of our family tree
That makes you put those darn commas everywhere,
for all the world to see!
I've raised you to always use comma-sense
but you seldom listen to me.

ROCK, this is flat-out comma-mendable!

As for the commas.. I believe it is simply the 'Standard of the Songwriter' - especially guitarists! It's the pause to reflect thing.

So comma-on and write some more!

OH, HAPPY DAY, OH, HAPPY DAY
OH, HAPPY DAY, OH, HAPPY DAY
WHEN MY JESUS WASHED, MY JESUS WASHED,
YES, MY JESUS WASHED, MY JESUS WASHED,
HE WASHED MY SINS, AWAY!
OH, HAPPY DAY, OH, HAPPY DAY!

HUGS, Rho

YOUR SIS,
CONNIE

Use of the commas, just comma-sense, I guess.

Most enjoyable, the plight of the commas.

The ability to laugh at yourself is what makes a human a real human.
Your poetic sentiments are delightful.

As for the cure, may I suggest a proctologist? They may not be able to help, but they'll sure get your attention.

Your admiring friend,
Richard
