There is an unfortunate assumption about people who use good grammar. Namely, people who know the difference among words such as: affect, effect, its, it's, all together, etc. are thought to be soulless and without an appreciation of creativity. In contrast, sometimes it's a grammar mistake which ironically causes your third grade English teacher to applaud.
ex. In Steam Powered Giraffe's song "Fire, Fire," there is a gut-wrenching line:
"There are men and women trapped in that room,
Flames scorching them, but they'll be out soon".
This song is about the horror of being an astronaut, where deliberately opening a hatch to the outside will fortunately extinguish a fire, unfortunately kill everyone in the room, and fortunately save the lives of everyone in the other rooms.
If you notice the plural pronoun of "they" in the second half, it's unclear whether this pronoun refers to the men and women trapped in that room OR to the flames. Men and women are plural. Flames are plural, too.
