Consistency and Doors


Should my versing rhymes

Consistent always be

Verse construct the same each time

Trochee start e.g ?


Will mixing round iambs, trochees

Cause readers go amuck

And throw hands up frustrated

Exclaiming “What the fuck!” ?


Don you've just gone disobeyed

What you've said before

The eff word you would never use

Get out, go, there's the door


You've given me a pattern, thanks

To help my rhyming shine

Your first two lines start trochees

Then iambs start last lines


I'm out the door....

It's the door to the Like-Minders Theme Park. You have the keys. Thalia says you're privileged...

Door must stay open
let Mr Whatever enter
it will never close
we won't let it!

The Doors of Don's perception maybe. Or the doors of the wardrobe which leads us into the magical world of poetry.
