Write a Tirrellet Sonnet

This line demands your very, very best.
These words encompass and corral the rest.

Like onion layers one upon the next
the couplets backed up by the tercet pair
are cover for the most important text.

It may not be a rhyme that rings most rare,
it’s just the core of what’s a Tirrellet.
a brand new form that A.P. won’t forget,
invented here for poets everywhere.

An autologic poem just reflects
the manner followed to the end; we’re there
now, when we gets the first two lines annexed

These words encompass and corral the rest.
This line demands your very, very best.
