A Prize For Poetry

A trochee is always a beautiful measure --

Who writes in trochees for dubious pleasure?

And so, by all means please consider me:

I like a title and wouldn't mind a trophy.


I like best the trimeter --

What could be better 

Than sticky toffee pudding with a lovely cup of tea

Or plucky mountain ponies free of fetter?


But if you don't admire my pools of verse in threes

Then please ignore this claim and this splashy little tease

And dispense your prize as you please:

You'll prove who's wetter.
