Haiku: The comma

The comma: a haiku chain

Vexing comma. Why—
When countless options beckon—
Still rely on me?

Run-on into night,
Spliced clauses without full stop.
You darken my mind.

Hide inside the quotes,
Friend comma. Let foolish peers
Stray and risk my wrath.

Series comma: Yes!
Reliable and clear, but
Many shun you. Why?

Aim falling commas;
Make them not like sprinkling rain,
Scattered on the page.
