Make Joseph Happy

by DragonSkulls


What?
Are you nuts?
Whole complete statements?
I'll bet cash that won't happen.
People on here can't grasp rules.
Please, tell me I'm wrong.
Whole statements?
Right.

Laugh.
Yes I will.
You can believe that.
Many will get this so wrong.
"What do they mean by statement?
I'll make mine one long sentence.
Yeah, that's the ticket."
Then they'll join.
Great.

Wait.
Please spare us.
The committee weeps.
"We can't police these morons.
There's simply just too many.
Here's an idea.
Don't police."
"Yes!"

Why?
I don't know.
It's in black and white.
Make each line its own statement.
How dag-gone hard could it be?
Just read the dumb rules.
Then guess what.

Joy.
