I wrote this for a poetry
class I had a 2:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
When writing a sestina
Must always remember to
Check over everything
at least three
Sestinas are quite difficult
to write in only five
Or ten minutes. Complex
song of sixes
I once wrote a complex song of sixes
I only wrote one
I wrote it and I wrote it five
Times over again, trying desperate
Fit every line to a mold
and make it look natural
My class. It's Thursdays, before three
Tuesdays too, sometimes before three
complex songs of sixes
I sit in my seat, apprehensive
, waiting for
The class to end because I never
s with the song of sixes. Two
'O clock rolls around, I sing a little song of five.
See, I can do limerick
s, little songs of five.
Those, I have written, and songs of three
's on a Tuesday afternoon, up until two.
I think I managed to write six
Of those. That might be a song of twelve, but only one
Song of sixes have I ever written for...
What have I ever written for?
Sitting up late
In the morning, only to fall to one
Song, the song
Twice over again. Yes, it's six
And maybe it's sick, but if I don't get it by two
I think I'll just have to
today and head to lab at four.
Stupid damn song of sixes.
of mine once wrote five
Of them. My professor
But me I have only ever written one
Song of sixes and it is going to end in
Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One,
