You guys are going to have to be patient with this one. I was trying to write an entry for our Discord server’s call for submissions, and I thought I would practice rhythm in my poetry. Key word being practice, though. Sigh. Would that identifying stressed and unstressed syllables in English were less…well, stressful. Sorry to inflict this on you, but if I don’t practice I’ll never get better. Actually, do you have any suggestions on how I can improve? Do let me know! I’d love to give it a try.
You are not safe.
The walls are closing in on you and me
We are like rats in a trap, stuck and caught
Try hard to wriggle, wriggle free and be
Just like the man, he calls himself Scott Free
But that is not my name. And it’s not yours.
