If you play ball with me, I'll see to it that the fellas' don't break your kneecaps.
Would one of you grammar gurus conjugate the above sentence for me? I'm particularly interested in the 'play ball' phrase. Since the speaker doesn't mean to literally play with a ball, how is it being used here?

The one that always seems to be under or overused in poems is the pesky comma. It seems to be a contentious point to know when and when not to use it by many grammar nazis on here. lol
What is right and what is wrong when used in poetry?
I am sure many out there will have their thoughts
