Skeeter Sonnet

 Skeeter Sonnet.
A gadget sonnet form created by Barry Hopkins, writing on Allpoetry as Black_Narcissus, and given the name Skeeter Sonnet by Lawrencealot.

It is a quatrazain.
It is metrical consisting two metric feet a dactyl followed by a trochee.
All even lines except the last, are catalectic.
It is rhymed like an Shakespearean Sonnet
Rhyme pattern: ababcdcdefefgg

This is his first such poem.

A Stunted Sonnet. ( Or Shakespeare Sawn In Half – Nearly )

 
Slightly confusing
naming new forms
some say abusing
orthodox norms,
new innovations
so avant-garde
poet’s creations
cutting-edge bard,
sonnet conversion
stunted not long
is it perversion
shamefully wrong?
Couplet conclusion
adding confusion.

My example

Named: (Skeeter Sonnet)

It’s what you name it
I reckon, sir.
If you should claim it
then it’s your cur.
Well known’s its meter
rhyme pattern too,
small like a skeeter
as used by you.
Not as expected
Ii doesn’t hurt,
even connected
to a pervert.
Thus I’m concluding
we’ll be colluding.

I propose that this bimeter sonnet be named the Skeeter Sonnet.
