April 9: Apostrophe Yes

Rhetorical device par excellence:
How Your direct address fills me with glee!
O Universal Cry when fortune daunts–
You all-important hymn of irony;

Reduced in common usage though You are,
To show possession and elided letters,
We wordsmiths venerate You from afar,
Considering ourselves Your humble debtors.

One cannot elevate soliloquy
So powerfully without Your attributes.
Bring into being precious colloquy
Between You and our innermost disputes.

I hope that You don’t find it blasphemy
That I’ve apostrophized Apostrophe.
