Comma, period and semicolon;
went for a ride in an overused wagon.
The wagon was unable to take the load,
it broke into pieces on a city wide road.
“What have you done? said the officer;
I will send you to prison to meet the jailer.”
Oh me, oh my screamed all three;
we cannot go to jail please set us free!

Punctuation is so important, sometimes it becomes tricky, my mind thinks I should use a period, my sentence says make it a little longer or else there’d be someone ready to criticize you. I was criticized once, I disliked the comment I thought this one is trying to assert how good s/h is. I got over it and was happy to notice that one does not come my way.
Do I overuse exclamation mark, I do not think I’m guilty of that, I use it sparingly. I do not use semicolons that much, I just don’t think about them.
I think I use period and comma a lot, I cannot do without them.
