This is not a quadrille

They sneaked into
my bedroom
under cover of
darkness, slipped 
on the handcuffs and
placed me under
arrest. I protested
my innocence, but the
poetry police wouldn't
listen.  A
quadrille is a dance
originating in France
I insisted and refused
to say another

  1. I see these fly past occasionally, but… too much detail. I can only just do limericks. Here’s a good one, though. Start off a debate with a poet by sayong “Poems should rhyme” and sit back and watch the sparks fly. Great fun.

  2. Oh my god, I love this. Sums up the feeling of structured poetry and those who can argue if you go just one word over the limit lol.

    Well said. Hopefully, poetry jail is short-lived. ๐Ÿ˜
