I-Am-Bic A Poet ... For All Pentameter
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

When penning the poems
from my heart,
scare can I remember,
which iambic I am in ...
measure or pentameter.

I'm not sure it matters
to the heart in which it rests,
if I forgot to add a penny to the meter
that they might like the best.

So before I go
totally bombastic ...
take your iambic pentameter ...
and shove it in a basket !

Shoot it to the patients
at the Stute of Pleasure.
They cannot resist
things in iambic measure.

Just tell them that it's good for them,
then adminsister it real quick.
They'll be so high, they won't even know
to iambic pentameter they're now an addict.

*My goodness...someone come and get me ...I think I'm beginning to think like 'THEM'.
See ... it is contagious ... and I need the quarantine ward.

Good Lord !
This was a dredge from foreverly ago~
Went over like the proverbial lead balloon, didn't it?
LOL ... thanks Denise ... over FOUR years later ... and to you Dawn for unearthing this piece~ (I think)
