It’s advice, or is it?

It’s it’s if it’s the its that means “it is”,
It’s its if it’s the its that means “it owns”.
If it’s the its that fits that means no tizz
When comprehension leads you into groans.

The there that’s there should never be a they’re,
Unless the there you mean should mean they are.
Unless their theres are always right and square,
Their theres will never get a poet far.

And writing wright when write is what is right,
Is almost like a rite for some who pen.
I try to write a comment that’s polite
But means they won’t get write all wrong again.

And now you’ve seen a sonnet set the scenes,
You ought to understand what “it’s its” means.

Author notes

I would not be in the least surprised if I have some of these wrong!
