*Previously we published on this site a poem called "How do you live your dash?" We recently learned that this poem actually entitled, "Tha Dash," was written by Linda M. Ellis of Linda's Lyrics, http://www.lindaslyrics.com/ and that Ms. Ellis owns and has registered the copyright to her poem. We are glad that we can now credit Ms. Ellis as the author and copyright owner of "Tha Dash."
