Example Poem
Volta Optional     (Curtailed Quaintrelle)
What twisted thinking must I use
to try this form yet not abuse
the notion held that sonnets meld
a volta, or a twist?
I boldly pound this keyboard now,
I think I’ve found the lee just how
allowing me, somehow the glee
I’m apt not to resist!
I’ll let this sonnet, as it should,
meander through here looking good,
then without fail, right here, curtail
a volta!  Pound my fist!
The Nevada Sonnet: is the same.
Internal rhyme with sonnet name.

Example Sonnet
California Grows Nevada     (PGMA Sonnet)
When California raised the rate at which
it taxes the “rich” it assured one thing.
In Nevada cash registers will ring.
The small businesses won’t just stay and bitch.
Some are bound to stay; many though will switch
to states nearby where taxes have less sting.
These states will see a relative upswing.
Increasing taxes simply won’t enrich.
Thanks Wilson, for a few more jobs right here
in Nevada, it’s appreciated.
Though Dems seem to think it’s complicated,
it’s really not, to me it is quite clear.
When their quest to tax is finally sated
We could end-up overpopulated.

Paulo Comitatu Sonnet

Paulo Comitatu means  “Little Train” in Latin.
This Sonnet was created by Lawrencelot, using the Paulo Comitatu poetry form designed by Allan R. Emery, aka Joe King on Allpoetry.
I think all credit for the form should go to him, after all I simply added a heroic couplet to his already existing work and expanded the metric options.
Jose Rizal M. Reyes of the Philippines,  has identified sonnets of the head, the heart, and the hand.
I believe Joe King has a reverence for the traditional sonnets of the head and heart, and therefore would not himself (I suspect) compose a “gadget” sonnet-  (those which Jose refers to as sonnets of the hand.)
I have no such reservation.  Here is a form that will lend itself well to levity, capriciousness, and mirth, simply because mono-rhyme plays to that arena, as does the late volta.
This sonnet is composed of 3 quatrains, the first line of each being iambic  pentameter or tetrameter, and  the next three being one foot less (tetrameter or trimeter).
The closing couplet is Iambic pentameter.
Rhyme scheme: abbb accc deee dd
