I am a QUESTION MARK, what do I do?
I'm at the end of questions, like Where? What? or Who?

I am a PERIOD, that means full stop,
At the end of a sentence, just make a dot.

I am a COMMA, if you see me just pause,
So hang back, Jack, and think of what was.

QUOTATION MARKS hold the talking within,
So if somebody speaks, just look for the twins.

I am a COLON, I am two dots,
I'm the introducer, I express your thoughts.

An EXCLAMATION POINT is so like "wow,"
If you're writin' so excitin' then put me in now!

The APOSTROPHE  ... it shows possession,
Team up with an 's' ... that's my obsession.
