I is for Iambic Pentameter


ITo what domain should I devote my pen?To verse where I betray my ignorance? For I to put these words on blogging, sense Is strained by hackneyed turns of phrase — what then? Oh Muse! Betray me not! This dalliance Is but a metered post occasioned when The A to Z endeavor strikes again A block on all my words. And so I hence State: I am giving up writing iambic pentameter. Trochee troubles set up by dactyl frustrations. And lines get tangled up in dull calculations So my all my metrical feet can all, in the end, fit inside there.
