Neater Meter For Mr Earley

Neater meter?

I have to write a sonnet in free verse.
I must stick to Iambic pentameter.
A meter that I do not often use.
Pentameter is my more usual style.
A Sapphic meter would be so much worse.
I am more comfortable with the latter.
I find that some odd metres can confuse
a simple rhymester like me for a while.
I’m quite convinced that pentameter
makes my presentations appear neater.
It may be that you think I am obtuse
and that my simple verses make you smile.
You are entitled to your point of view.
Naturally I won’t agree with you!

'makes my presentations appear neater'....... My sentiment exactly! Thanks my friend!
Your pentameter is much sweeter, sapphic for you just wouldn't do! ! Nice read Ivor! ! *10*! ! Friend Thad
