The punctuation mark comma (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

English class taught me yes
College prof told me no
One boss adds it in
Another says it must go

Before “and” is its place
AP Style argues
It eats up needless space

Separates and causes drama
Let’s pause to find some clarity
On use of the Oxford comma
