Example Poem

Waisted!     (Scupham Stanza)
 
 
 
The Scupham rhyme is like our Cathie Jung.
Who is in the Guiness World Record book.
The stanza’s spread by rhyme  that pinches some
When to the middle you let rhyming come.
That could be construed as the hour-glass look.
A form for which this septarian’s sung.

38.1 cm (15 in). Un-corseted, it measures 53.34 cm (21 in).
