Once again, it’s time for me to have some attempts at a disciplined form of sticking some words into a recognised pattern.

As the title suggests, it’s a five line form, they don’t need to rhyme and I try to make them topical. So it’s a good title.

I start by trying to stick to a ‘traditional cinquain’ 1,2,3,4,1 words format. There’s also some gibberish (note: may be understood by intelligent people, so if any of those have stumbled in here, go have a look at the linked page here) about iambic feet and whatnot, but I had already tripped over mine after trying to digest five numbers in a row.

delicate structures
formed in tension
along comes the PM

off home
the panicked stations
heavily gift-laden passengers

deep negotiations
delusional about fish
who rarely encounter borders

pure emotion
routines of complexity
all over the television

There was actually no chance of seizing control of the TV remote when this was on.

Thank you for visiting Scribblans today. Sorry it probably wasn’t very good.
This bit of text here used to be me wittering on and effectively begging you to share the post, but I have decided not to bother with all that for 2021. Most people ignore it anyway.
