My Example poem

A Hyperbolic Dangle (Allegorose)

Though there’s a steep incline
you need not fear this bridge of mine
Just trust the cable.
It’s made of tempered steel, not rope or twine.
Despite appearances, it’s stable.

An able bodied man,
or woman, boy or girl who can
show brave demeanor
Can almost skip along across the span,
but you may use a carabiner.

The need to cross is rare
but real, and for the few who care
to sway and dangle
it’s much more fun to go from here to there,
than coming back ‘cus of the angle.
