Grammar Nazi's Lament

Dot all your i’s and cross your t’s
It’s a war, come one, come all
Make sure all your words are right
It might degrade into a brawl

“Alot” of stuff makes my head spin
Surely that is not “real good”
You “could of” changed your habits sooner
“Its” plain to see you really could

“Defiantly” change, improve your ways
“Loose” the negative attitude
“Their” counting on you, lead the charge
This reveals “you’re” aptitude

So remember your apostrophes
And no run-ons should win the game
Though you may think us vexing trolls
Please don’t give us all the blame
