  1. Wow, I just felt that boot! I love the humor in this and I hate to be the one to tell you, but you did a great job with the meter and word play to make this fun and effective. The thing is, those of us who dread meter use it without even knowing it. Trust me.

  2. Oh, YES. I am sooooooo with you! “Iamb” meter challenged, for sure.
    I LOVE this:
    “Iambic pentameter
    Just doesn’t matterer
    To my muse any way”

  3. As Victoria & Bjorn contend, most of s are writing iambs, using meter, having learned through osmosis, or just reading other poets. I hear & feel you with this one; smile.

  4. I am a fan of structured poems when done well, and this one is so well done. I love the sardonic wink wink word play. Thanks so much for posting to the Out of Standard! Viva la

  5. Fun to write or rant against meter poems. I enjoy the challenge but I think my brain is not wired for such strict structures !

So? What do you think?
