Careful With That Splicer, You Gene.
There's just one apostrophe in '40s
We loathe hypocritical people
At most one catastrophe per day, please
An accent mark upgrades eggshell to ècru
But they tell me it's still on the boat from Peru
And ignore diacritical marks
We shy away from the steeple
But don't like to swim with the sharks
Reassessing the Wealth of this Nation
A brisk morning walk in the park
Obsessing upon punctuation
But missing the odd puncture mark
