I Fought With The Alphabet

Poem By nimal dunuhinga

My English teacher said; ' A sentence should start with a capital letter.'
I opposed and she detained me out of the class.
One day I sent her a letter; My dearest Love
'L' with capital.
Since that day she is very kind to me.
But still I am a simple letter.

superb presence of mind...
Nimal, I so love your special sense of the absurd. You express it with rare individuality and brevity too. Love with a capital L indeed! No wonder she changed her tune. Irony penned with great wit and gentleness. love, Allie xxxx
Affection seems to be more important than grammar. At least, in this case. I hope that the student received good grades from his teacher ever after. Unique, as always. Warm regards, Sandra
