This work has reached the exceptional level

Prologue of the book Get Well, Brooke!
counting down poem
"Ten Bards a-bawling" by LIJ Red
Ten Fanstory poets
rhyming mighty fine
one hashed a metaphor
then there were nine.

Nine FS poets
sounding really great
one claimed he had a muse
then there were eight

Eight hopeful bards
here in poet's heaven
one reversed syntax
then there were seven

Seven poets writing
in meter that clicks
one had to insert "did"
then there were six.

Six eager poets
starting to jive
one got really trite
then there were five.

Five poets working
with iambic roar
one called his dad a brute
then there were four

Four poets writing
with religious glee
one was filled with lust
then there were three

Three poets giving it
the best that they could do
one harped on his diseases
then there were two

Two determined poets
under the gun
one wrote about a sunset
then there was one.

One haggard poet
his race nearly run
started writing free verse
then there were none.



The book continues with Darkness Before Sunrise. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
Oh, chill. Just playing.
Sorta thinking about Brooke and her counting poems...
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
