This poem. For Michael Gove.

This poem meets several National Curriculum criteria
I will edit as I go- oh no!

This poem meets several National Curriculum criteria full stop
I will edit as I go along.
As I edit, I will go along- no that is wrong.
As I go along, I will edit.

This poem, exciting and imaginative,
has a parenthetical expanded noun phrase
and a comma after an introductory clause
(that will get applause)
and uses adventurous punctuation…

This poem displays subject/object agreement
and when I first thought of it,
including complex sentences was a priority
and some compound ones too.

This poem, which was written by me passively,
could have been written actively
with a modal verb, relatively speaking, but I,
who wrote the poem, embedded clauses thoroughly.

I will start a new verse to show that I know about paragraphs.

I do enjoy an indented paragraph.

My poem is better than their poem.
They’re rubbish at this.
There! I showed what I know! I exclaimed it!

That was fun.
This poem is done.

Unfortunately, you failed to include a fronted adverbial, so you have not met your target.
