The Exclamation Point


The exclamation point
I have often used
there’s even times
it I have abused.

Whenever I want
my point to drive
home to another
I use it to arrive

At an understanding
between them and me
I use the exclamation
for them to see

I’ll stand behind
the point that I make
and no argument
from them will I take!
