“I Don’t Get It, Poetry”: an IMbic Romantic Sonnet

I don’t get it, Poetry.

Pentameters iambic;

Rhythms Pedantic;

Imagery.

 

Words that

Try to rhyme

Sometimes;

But frequently don’t.

 

Stresses and Meters

That fit in a beat,

But they only succeed

In confusing the reader.

 

I don’t get it, Poetry.

But I get the romance you write to me.
