Vers Beaucoup

Written for MLMM’s Saturday Mix- Lucky Dip where we have to write a Vers Beaucoup.

The Vers Beaucoup, a poem for created by Curt Mongold, which is French for “many rhymes”. Each stanza consists of four lines with a rhyming word scheme of:
a-a-a-
a-b-b-
b-c-c-
c-d-d

Each rhyme can only use a MAXIMUM of three words. The fourth “a” rhyme carried over to the second line causes enjambment and creates a strong internal rhyming structure.

I was right, that the might of our knight
won the fight. So don’t whine like a swine,
just drink your wine. Then be a man and hatch a plan,
to end the clan that brought shame to our name.
