The Grammar Dance

Predicate nominative
Dangling participle
Adverbial phrase
Oh those damn gerunds
Leave me alone, all of you
So confused
Parsing sentences
You taunt me with your complexity
Pronouns, interjections, conjunctions
Prepositions too
You are everywhere
At once clarifying and confounding
Clouding my brain
Determiners and articles
My God you never end
Direct and indirect objects
Why do we need you?
Can’t live with you and can’t live without you
Clauses, infinitives, coordinated adjectives
How I hate you
I ate you
I berate you
Need you
You are all useless clutter
Assuming I think of you at all
Simple present and perfect and future tenses
Bloody ridiculous
