10 Days of Heat: STORY 2: Camp Life (Day 7)

Day-7-2017

camping-shit

Camping life is never for us
Tried it once and it didn’t work
Uncomfortable and what’s the fuss?
Camping life is never for us
End up fighting, sorry for cuss
So disastrous, came home berserk
Camping life is never for us
Tried it once and it didn’t work*

* A Triolet is a poetic form consisting of only 8 lines. Within a Triolet, the 1st, 4th, and 7th lines repeat, and the 2nd and 8th lines do as well. The rhyme scheme is simple: ABaAabAB, capital letters representing the repeated lines.

Make writing a Triolet more challenging! Make each line 8 syllables in length (4 metrical feet), written in iambic tetrameter (the more common way), or try it in pentameter (English version) where each line only has 10 syllables (5 metrical feet).
