ORIGINAL , My response to learning the formal style by Ronda Dee @Oct 30, 2014

They ask me to be original
within a box of rules.
With anapest and Budapest
Iambs and troches are best.
I almost suffocate
on a villanelle.

I haven’t learned to play
the troche and the anapest
The names of all I do.
I write free verse
at times quite terse,
other times it flies away
pen to paper saves my day.

I may retire from hard knock
school of writers
Take my muse
and dip her in a pool
of ink and dry her.
