Example Poem 

Ducky Bras
Please let me make your bra.
My business needs a start.
And you would look so fine
If you were to be seen
In a brassier of mine.
Please let me make your bra.
I custom fit each one.
I promise they will fit.
I measure lovingly,
I hold and weigh each tit.
Please let me make your bra.
One price for any size.
Your bust can’t be too large.
I do so love my work,
thus may reduce the  charge.
Please let me make your bra.
I’ll give you some cleavage
if you want,  and push up
those puppies, TuDor style,
Adding at least a cup.

One Response to Monchielle

  1. Thanks for featuring my form here, Lawrence! The example was great, though maybe you ought to put in a blank line between each stanza to make it easier to read? The aid you made is great. You could maybe put in your own poem in the visual template with one syllable in each box, so it’s even more evident how it works. I hope that other poets finds this page, and gets the help they need from it. 😀 Jim
