Ah, our hard diction, where would they be without it..."Killing me softly" is what they need and want,like the song said...Hit them in the royal behind with the hardest reflections!

'The Gaming Of The Shrew.'
The wildest steed, though fiercely able,
Is susceptible to reins
When roped and coaxed into a stable,
And away from shapely plain.
I thought this was an excellent poem. Well done.

I loved it. Using ellipsis in metered poetry I've always found enjoyable both to read and write. The meter itself is extremely clear and I don't think it would lose much rhythm however you split it. Content is personal, funny, descriptive and tied together so neatly at the end. Thanks!

How did I miss this one?! Just been alerted by one of my sisters in male form (not telling who though. Don't wanna mess with the brotherhood, or should that be sisterhood? Whatever). Stallion? Oh God, you rogues flatter yourself ... more like horse's arse! It kills me to say it, but some fabulous word play in this: 'shapely plains'; 'corralling glory'; 'hard (poetic) diction' (gotta love THIS one).
The rating that I flubbed in my review for your other piece (poetic LOL) will go to this one. Just don't get it in your head that you've won. You are going down rogue (poetic)!
Cheers
Paula

    Thank you so much, Paula, and I'm sorry to hear that there are spies in my midst. I guess the rogue will have to remain a lone wolf, after all. :) yes, he's very much the horse's arse, but he knows it and that's what makes him dangerous and unbridled.

Oh you little cat biscuit you!! I think this Friday you're gonna be ridden hard and put away wet. You've made many good points in your shout out. Even though I don't agree with a single one of them, they are presented in perfect meter and form. :)

It is to this Rapscallion shrewish nonsense that I shall issue my first retort. I will respond in form and to point and leave a shout out to you, Rogueth, Deareth.

One a serious note this is super fun and very well written, David and even a little bit insightful into the female persona. But only a taste to titillate.

Exceptional work in every way.

Gloria

    I have no doubt that the big wave will crash down on the ROgue this Friday, as you and the other heavy hitters are loaded for Rogue, and I know it's not buckshot you're packing.

    Thank you very much, and I loved your retort. However, I'll wait till Friday to respond.

    I do agree that this offers a bit of truth, as well.

This is another good one Marillion. You are determined to protect us with great advice. Love the punny bridal/ bridal hold on you in vs one. It is consistent with the metaphorical horse whipping that you apply to these old grey mares' rumps throughout the poem. I like the exposure of her ploy to shed the nagging disposition, so she can bed you and wed you. Hay, that wouldn't be so bad, if her form remained consistent after the harnessing, and resulted in regular tours of the haystack. Now, that would be a stable relationship. I've never heard it called poetic diction before, but I'm willing to use my dickionary to help the mares improve their flow. You certainly have used your Byronic, ironic tendencies, and equinely important, you know a horseshit load of great ways to stir up the fillies and mares.

    Thanks for a great and entertaining review, my friend, and you caught a lot of the nuances, which I appreciate very much. Perhaps I should footnote you in the event I'm led to a "dictionary" reference.

When you deduce her use of fiction,
Take the reins and my advice,
And use your hard (poetic) diction
To seduce her once...or twice.

A bit Schopenhauer-ian for my taste, but a very entertaining read none the less. As usual, your author notes are intimidating.

    I don't mean them to be, Gianinas. The words are more daunting than the execution, really. Thank you!

Don't take it seriously ladies.... Hahaha. I can see them giggling as the Rogue is taking snapshots of their jiggling bosoms for the midnight showing. Perfectly written as always. I think you could actually write about anything. This is too much fun. A great diversion. mikey

    Thanks so much, Mikey. I actually DO like to write about anything and everything, but I think you're quite capable of the very same, my friend. I appreciate it.

Please excuse the expression, but I found this very poetic. It's light, it has humor and if it's offensive, someone should find another hobby. Thanks for a great read. Best wishes.

This is a very amusing poem. I like the rhyming scheme, and the form. You communicate the theme clearly.
Perhaps men and women should learn to be co=operative, rather than trying to control the "love of their life"?
