Cyclists Who Don't Warn They're Approaching

I'm a runner in an area where there are a lost of cyclists. Could you write something about cyclists who fail to give the customary "on your left" warning before coming up behind me? It frequently scares me half to death, knocks me out of my zone, and is in general just rude and inconsiderate. D.D.

I jog along and you scare me half to death
Can't you just shout out "coming through on your left?"
Cyclists' silence is a blunder
Almost put me six feet under
I've seen sharper minds from those on meth

Yapping Dog While I Try to Meditate

Please write a little something about the yippee dog in my neighborhood. I love having my windows open but this dog drives me kuh-ray-ZEE! This morning, during my meditation, my thoughts went off as thoughts tend to do. But, you know where mine went? I'm not proud to say but I got a picture in my mind's eye of someone taking a gun to that dog. Oh my. Good about Massachusetts' gun laws.

During my morning meditation
Fifi next door yelps causing frustration
I long for her to stifle
Good thing I have no rifle
That bitch needs a larynx castration

Misusing "it's" and "its"

Possibly the most pervasive grammar mistake.

Look..."it apostrophe s" means it is
without the apostrophe...possessive
it's really not very hard
unless your brain's made of lard
seems a lot of people missed that pop quiz
