This work has reached the exceptional level
A night at the Fair with a mighty steed...
"Under the Canopy" by Artasylum
My name's… The Magnificent Steed:
White coat, black mane,
with rainbow reins.
Exotic breed!
The star of this mythical ride:
Colorful guide.
Calliope melody swells; 
Horses razzle 
bright lights dazzle
mirrors compel.

Up and down, down and up we go:
Where we will stop
nobody knows;
the fun's nonstop.
One, two, three, kids fight over me;  
laughter bursts out,
the winner… ME...
new rider mounts.
Midnight, Ugg... we're closed for the night.
Off go the lights.
Park is quiet,
Goodbye, good night!

Minute contest entry


Author Notes
I mixed up my rhymes: 3 stanza's on the top may not be a standard... I don't know but it felt right to me...

The lines under the asterisk change rhyme... the last four lines are in line with the grouping but also have a flavor of mono rhyme added... Go Figure.

The Minute Poem is a poem that follows the "8,4,4,4" syllable count structure. It usually has 3 stanzas that are exactly the same. So: 8,4,4,4; 8,4,4,4; 8,4,4,4 syllables.

A traditional Minute Poem has 12 lines total. It has 60 syllables. It is written in a strict iambic meter. The rhyme scheme is as follows: aabb, ccdd, eeff. However, for this contest there is not a requirement to follow the iambic meter rhyme scheme only to have a rhyme
