i ((secretly)) long for ((mr. parentheses))
by Megan Langley
ever been curious 'bout ((our friend)) mr. parentheses?
yeah well ((what can i say)) that man's my main squeeze.
for ((whenever i need him)) he comes to the rescue
((even after)) i've bid him a long adieu.
he's highly reliable ((you better believe it))
more so than mrs. bracket ((or monsieur carrot)).
so screw you thin hyphen ((and arrogant asterisk too))
we ((as in me)) have determined we don't need you.
so come back ((to me)) my lover ((my confidant and friend))
i promise i won't tell ((until the very end))
of our ((scandalous)) adventures within the ((foolish)) books
lest your wife can't control her evil ((dirty)) looks.
she'll pay you back ((oh yes she will)) with her fits and rages
in the form of ((peculiar)) punctuation plastered across the pages.
Author's Note: no flippin' clue where this came from ((seriously))
