Musicianship appals, diffuse as commas; lone
tinkerings before he breaks the warchest out,
the free bar’s effect on cones from twelve to three …
fraught as apostrophe; for: what metal grip of paws
or saltier group could man the tiller squallways

(contraction genitive, genitive contraction)
true the parchment boat of right right-handed grammar?
Hardly Society, if dangling modified with Thatcher:
the Telegraph perhaps, the Barclays; the Plain English
Campaign; letter-writers, pedants. Simon Heffer.
