Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A pet peeve of mine
It's lose, not loose
when you're without something
don't be a silly goose
I guess it's a little nothing
but it grates on my nerve
when on a major news site
those who are supposed to be pros
don't always get it right
I'm far from perfect, to be sure
I have a lot to know
about being a writer
and it does surely show
at times it can be tricky
to use loose or lose just right
you might be in a rush
when time is really tight
and you're posting a quick remark
or a random thought
you don't always know
the error that you wrought
but if something is not tight
it surely is not lose
That's all I want to say
about my lose and loose blues.
