By Thomas Page

Grammar, grammar, ev’rywhere
But not a drop to
Think—English lecture
The passive voice is
Found in wordy, technical
Scholarly journals
The active voice finds
Itself in the style guides
Of writing classes
Write, revise, write, breathe,
Revise, look up source again,
Rewrite, revise, print
“More than him” means, in
Essence, I prefer something
Else, but that’s a rule
