The sonnet, it is great for passing time.
A B A B C D C D one more,
Then add a couplet at the end with rhyme,
And Iams in the pentameter score.
There is no subject needed to complete.
It’s like a crossword lacking all the clues.
With romance or absurdity it’s neat,
And unlike crosswords there’s no way to lose.
Elizabethan suites me to a tee,
But A through F can mix in many ways.
Yet all the structure helps the mind be free,
And when you’re waiting shortens many days.
So to conclude this verse about this verse,
I’ll add that rhyming couplet and disperse.
