My example poem
Within the Bounds? (Cinq-Cinquain)
some rhymes in every verse
I know I can but should I now
doubts here would make it worse,
I’ll proceed- rhyming anyhow.
while I’m beating
time, now seems so perverse,
although the rules don’t disallow
from a fleeting
desire to intersperse
some lyricism here and now
that I’m cheating where terse
is sought and I use rhyme somehow
