Track Name: Antithetical Commas
I wake up in the morning, but I'm not fully awake
Though I try to stand up, I slither like a snake
I have an hour to take a shower and gather all my gear
But wait a sec, it seems that I've forgotten something here

I remember my assignment for my Grammar English class
I have to write a song, educating in a flash
About how commas can be used for clause opposition
I've thought of things to do, but nothing has come to fruition

I only have five minutes, but I crank out rhyming lyrics
The time limit has forced me to think very esoteric
Though I plan extravagence, the finished product's measly
So let's begin your lesson, it's simple and it's easy

Antithetical commas are used to contradict a phrase
I've used them a few times already, here's another case:
"The more time I spend thinking about what I can produce,
The less of it I really manage to finally induce"

Antithetical clauses will never need a conjunction
The comma is already in place and proudly serves its function
It's a very simple concept you no doubt already grasp
Two clauses hooked together with the comma as the clasp
