So have fun with the 5-7-5 poetry type. But it must follow the proper syllable count. A 5-7-5 poem has three lines. The first line has 5 syllables. The second line has 7 syllables. The third line has 5 syllables again.
Don't eat yellow snow (5 syllables)
It's not healthy as you know (7 syllables)
Besides, it tastes bad! (5 syllables)
