THREE SILLY POEMS, THE MIDDLE ONE OF WHICH IS PROBABLY ON POINT.
One can be terse
When writing anisometric verse,
Or things can get hectic,
As in the case of Ogden Nash who, at least in his later work, wrote single lines that could turn into paragraphs before he got around to finishing them off in his all but inimitable style which was undeniably anisometric.
I currently like 30 Rock.
Unfortunately, new episodes don't air until 9 o'clock.
Since I'm usually drowsy by then, I'm reduced to enjoying the fun
Maybe the purpose of mastering form and meter
Is to become a good cheater.
Though he was a master of form -- I mean, the man wrote the world's best vllanelle! -- you'll find a lot of metrical fooling around, I promise,
In Dylan Thomas.
