########## Eat Your H@! – by Williarmis ##########

I really like the symbol @

Short and round and not too fat

It’s quick to draw and what’s so great;

The way it’s said – there’s no debate

In spoken word or online chat,

EVERYONE says this as @

 

Another symbol with a name

That everyone would say the same

This hollow dot, we’d all agree

Is known to us as the °

(Though different cases could be made

For C or C).

 

Another punctuation sign

Is short and flat, a simple line

For of them could make a #

But all alone, it’s called a

Though like a snake can too be python

The flash old is also

 

Your pride will be, quite rightly swollen,

To read this as a ;

And better still, you should be thrilled,

To call this wiggly worm a ~

And if this verse is rightly scanned,

You’ll know this as the &

(if that seemed fast, then you’ve been hampered

– your poor old ‘sand’ has not been ‘ampered’!

 

Regarding punctuation marks,

I’ll finish off with these remarks,

Score points for every sign you knew

Then add them up – how did you do?

If, out of ten, you fail this test,

You get an X (though X is best!)
