Prompt: Creating a poem following the rhyme scheme: abab, cdcd, efef, gg. Us the couplet to provide a conclusion, amplification, or even refutation of the previous three stanzas. Be creative as always (the challenge is how to be creative within the confines of a set rhyme scheme).
The Catlin Gabel Grape Vine Makes Tears
Oh you are a summoner, no way man
Yes its an honor to rile people, up
Don’t you find that sinister, young pup-ay
No not at all, it is quite satanic
Well if I must elaborate on satanic
You mean satanic Things you old scallywag
Come on now, Don’t be a drag Constance
I’m nothing of the sort, actually quite manic
I would describe myself as a bouncing bean
Oh that is true, you are quite dramatic
I am a slab of wood ready to be burned
Does this relate to your love seen? Perhaps?
Perhaps it does, let’s be democratic though
Indecisiveness is what churns it
Are you insinuating something about..
Democracy! yes I am, Don’t Panic
I’m fine, your political views are not
My views on such things sunk like Titanic
How do views sink dramatically?
Quite easy when you are manic like me
