Fiction : Reinvented
Sit up straight and pay attention
It's POETRY this morning
But you can't just write any old stuff
I'm giving you a warning!
Writing clever or funny thoughts
Is nothing but a crime
To make this intellectual
You have to make it rhyme.
Prices include postage and packaging. No returns accepted.
Then to really impress your reader
Nothing in this life is sweeter
Forget your I-pad, mobile phone
You need your Iambic Pentameter
Blank verse you think is easy
Just write down any old stuff
Intonation, alliteration are the tricks
To stop blank verse sounding rougher
Now settle down and write a poem
One that's witty, 'with it', 'coll'
But, remember... you'll be in detention
If you don't follow every rule...
