No Rule To Be Afraid Of
The grammar has a rule absurd
Which I would call an outworn myth--
"Apreposition is a word
You must n't end a sentence with!"
that rule I very often flout
Because It makes me far from calm.
It's one I do not care about.
I wonder where they get it from!
I'll make a preposition do
The thing I want to use it for.
Why should that be objected to?
There's nothing in it to abhor.
For since my school-days first commenced
It is a practice which I've found
No reason to protest against
Amid the folks I've been around.
And though to purists it's a sin
And one that's largely frowned upon,
It's one that I've persisted in
Whatever spot I'm dwelling on.
For if to any sentence pat
A preposition adds more pith,
And aids what I am driving at,
Why, that is what I'll end it with!
