Amphion Poem-Potlatch Challenge

Lazy Slug Holiday (EVERYDAY!)

by michaelcahill

I honour slugs and their slick style
the slimey groove
with which they move
oh yeah, those eyes on sticks beguile
just lay around
it's not profound
who needs the burden of a shell
this lazy day
to lay, lay, lay,
around without a tale to tell



SIMPLE! The GREAT thing is, I NEVER would've written this without the challenge of writing something in this new style. :))

The Amphion:
â?? a poem of 10 lines.
â?? metered, tetrameter lines alternate with sets of rhymed dimeter cuplets

Syllabic 8/4/4/8/4/4/8/4/4/8 with a rhyme scheme--abbaccdeed

8 syllable lines=

da Dum/ da Dum/ da Dum/ da Dum (tetrameter)
4 syllable lines=

da Dum/ da Dum (dimeter)

â?? Rhymed, rhyme scheme abbaccdeed
