    Stops & pauses

    Mucking around & I was given the topic of grammar to write a poem about (don't ask )

    Here's what I came up with:

    Stops & pauses
    Stops & pauses
    What was said
    And what was not

    Stops and pauses
    Stops and pauses
    What was meant
    And what was not

    Stops & pauses
    Stops & pauses
    Stop the speaking
    Stop the meaning

    Stops & pauses
    Stops & pauses
    Speaking is not meaning
    Meaning is not speaking

    “Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it and, above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light.”

    Hey GM. This reminds me of a Lou Reed track. Check it out. Enjoyed the poem.
