Lesson (dedicated to MarkK - who will understand)
i am a lower case letter -
trying to be unnoticed,
uncertain that there is a right
to be seen or heard.
sometimes that 1st person (pronoun)
and there is no subject to the predicate;
it is assumed – or lapses into passive voice,
an error forbidden to students.
and possessive pronouns
have also been censured and censored,
one can only guess what belongs to whom.
But 2nd and 3rd persons are fine.
YOU & THEY get all the action and possessions
– in ALL CAPS!
They have greatly oppressed me from my youth, but they have not gained the victory over me.
Plowmen have plowed my back and made their furrows long.
But the Lord is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.
