Plane 9/11

• The Plane 9/11 is an invented form created by John W Henson. Obviously it is meant as a memorial to September 11, 2001, the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and hijacking of Flight 93.

The Plane 9/11 is:
○ stanzaic, written with a 9 line stanza, a tercet, a 9 line stanza and a single line, in that order.
○ syllabic, 1-1-2-2-2-2-2-2-2 11-11-11 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-1 11,
○ rhymed, abbccddee ffg hhiijjkka g.

My example

Prescribed Insanity (Form: Plane 911)

Men
taught
that thought
depends
on ends
above,
not of
this life,
cause strife

and gain stature among their insane brothers
who deem virgins accrue from killing others,
(the words of one warped, persuasive lunatic.)

If you
can view
such choice
as voice
of He
who be
supreme
I deem
then,

your life’s a waste of oxygen, and you’re sick.
