The Lyrics

Swell, I’ve a real love for the form; it’s singin’ to me;
I don’t to for highfalutin’ poetry.
That’s OK, though some may rue it,
but their rebukes prompt me to do it.

It’s with anapests wrought,
primarily with anapests wrought.
It’s with anapests wrought—
lines start with A.

I get on with it, get on…
start an A there;
one more A; going next where?
There’s a B, in fact, a twain—
I head right back to the A again.

It’s with anapests wrought—
not solely…mostly anapest-wrought,
It’s with anapests wrought—
lines B and A.

Swell, I’ve a real love for the form: AABBA.
I don’t mean the group that hails from Sweden way,
whose tunes you may find: Some rue ’em,
including me; I eschew ’em

But here I digress lots…
back to rooting for anapest-wrought
verses…get me wet, hot,
fired up each day.
