Did You Hear About the Writer Tried Using a Dangling Participle? Being Obviously Guilty, the Jury Convicted Him a Run-on Sentence
Shouldn’t people who shoot first and ask questions later
Be given a much longer sentence
Than someone who simply just stood there and talked them to death?
And were sentence pronounced by an expert debater,
It might even lead to repentance.
Or, let them pronounce sentence—to see how they say “shibboleth”.
But wait: first we should shoot—give long sentences later
Which they’re forced to hear read, as their penance.
Cuz hey, think of this: if we shoot first, we might save our breath!
