Another sonnet for Susan

I do love you, my lovely hipster daughter:
Your mind is sharp, heart pure as fresh spring water.
Intelligence and wit you have to spare.
(I also like what you’ve done with your hair.)
You’re kind to your old man and to his son.
You treat your cats and dogs well, every one.
You let your father know that you love him
And call him with your news or on a whim.
You read and write well, and you make good art;
You’ve taught your son, so he’s made a good start.
Your use of language generally is great,
In that, too, you show an important trait.
Why do you then use unconnected “so’s”?
They get right up my curmudgeonly nose!

    So, I wasn’t going to comment but unconnected “so’s” drive me right up the wall too. Nails on a chalkboard!

So what do you think?
