Deliciously dangerous

Surprise! And so it then began

Sticky scene that wasn’t the plan

Not a showstopper for us all

Sorry if we disappoint you

As the train comes out of the blue

We skip the familiar brawl

Spicy call slipping en masse

Surprise by the earthy bypass

And deliciously dangerous

And all because of the season

And we’re not talking of reason

Don’t be nervous, we’re generous

Dangerous, think before you join

Enjoin for it’s adventurous*

  • A Jeffreys Sonnet was created by Scott J. Alcorn. It is isosyllabic (only 8 syllable per line), 2 sestets with a cross rhymed couplet (the cross rhyme is in the 2nd to 4th syllable in each of the two lines of the couplet). Also there is a cross rhyme in the first line of the 2nd sestet (between the 2nd to 4th syllable), tying the 1st sestet to the 2nd. So the rhyme scheme would be: aabccb, (b)ddeffe, (e)g (g)e. The letters in ( ) are the cross rhymes.
