I am, of course, none other than blank verse.
I don`t know where I`m going, yes, quite right;
And when I get there (if I ever do)
I might not recognise it. So? Your point?
Why should I have a destination set?
I`m relatively happy as I am,
And wouldn`t want to be forever aimed
Towards some future path or special goal.
It`s not to do with laziness, as such.
It`s just that one the whole I`d rather not
Be bothered - so I drift contentedly;
An underrated way of life, I find.

I`m the limerick, mired in muck.
I refuse to be bored or get stuck.
I like to offend,
But not, in the end,
As much as to thwart expectations.

I am the sonnet, never quickly thrilled;
Not prone to overstated gushing praise
Nor yet to seething rants and anger, filled
With overstretched opinions to rephrase;
But on the other hand, not fond of fools,
And thus, not fond of people, on the whole;
And holding to the sound and useful rules,
Not those that seek unjustified control.
I`m balanced, measured, sensible (at least,
I think I am, and usually I`m right);
And when more ostentatious types have ceased,
I`m still around, and doing, still, alright.
In short, I`m calm and rational and stable -
Or, well, I am, as much as I am able.

HEHEHEH! A cinquain.

Rubbish.
Yes, I`m rubbish.
I am the cinquain, and
Believe (unjustly) I`m clever.
Rubbish.

I know I should be telling you that I`m
A rubai - but perhaps some other time.
It sounds like work, and anyway, it`s late -
Unless I sleep, I`ll be too tired to rhyme.

Besides, there`s plates to clear and cups to clink,
And when that`s done I have to sit and think,
Since then it won`t be long before I need
To sleep again and eat again and drink.


Then it says, if you were not a Rubai, you`d be a haiku.

I am heroic couplets; most precise
And fond of order. Planned and structured. Nice.
I know, of course, just what I want; I know,
As well, what I will do to make it so.
This doesn`t mean that I attempt to shun
Excitement, entertainment, pleasure, fun;
But they must keep their place, like all the rest;
They might be good, but ordered life is best.

Or:

If they told you I`m mad, then they lied.
I`m odd, but it isn`t compulsive.
I`m the triolet, bursting with pride;
If they told you I`m mad, then they lied.
No, it isn`t obsessive. Now hide
All the spoons or I might get convulsive.
If they told you I`m mad then they lied.
I`m odd, but it isn`t compulsive.

Yay, rhyming.

I am the tanka.
The attention of others
Is unnerving, and
Since I try not to draw it,
I`m left alone. Which is good.

I`m terza rima, and I talk and smile.
Where others lock their rhymes and thoughts away
I let mine out, and chatter all the while.

I`m rarely on my own - a wasted day
Is any day that`s spent without a friend,
With nothing much to do or hear or say.

I like to be with people, and depend
On company for being entertained;
Which seems a good solution, in the end.

Ottava rima? Me? That can`t be right!
Too frivolous? But tut, there`s no such thing!
Let others ponder thoughts of wrong and right,
Or sit and think how much they love the spring;
I`d rather spend my time in gleeful spite,
Or maybe laugh, or maybe sit and sing.
Besides, it might be fun to be inspiring -
But surely it would get so very tiring.

I, as a clerihew,
Tend to be merry; too
Merry, it might, perhaps, by some, be claimed;
But I`m sure that these people are wrong, and need to be grievously maimed.

I`m the lai, with no sort
Of grave, solemn thought,
And I
Will never be caught
By miseries sought,
Nor sigh;
Where battles are fought
Or arguments brought,
I fly.

A cywydd llosgyrnog; I`m one.
"A what?" Well, quite. There`d be no fun
In being understood; I
Thrive upon obliquity.
Don`t comprehend or follow me,
For mystery`s my ally.

That`s me all right.

I give this quiz an A+
