This seems peculiarly apropos:

    I lately lost a preposition.
    It hid, I thought, beneath my chair,
    And angrily I cried "Perdition!
    Up from out of in under there!"

    Correctness is my vade mecum
    And straggling phrases I abhor.
    Still, I wonder, what should he come
    Up from out of in under for?
