I used to try to make my Five Line No-Rhyme Time posts topical, thus I called them Topical Five Line No-Rhyme Time.
But I am trying to give up being quite as topical as I have previously been. Not ‘nothing topical at all’, but certainly less so.
This leaves me with no choice but to modify the title of my posts, that used to be called Topical Five Line No-Rhyme Time, and to change them to simply Five Line No-Rhyme Time. Hopefully you should get the point that they are no longer ‘Topical’ from that, and also hopefully you won’t be expecting them to rhyme either, because they don’t and they didn’t before.
I hope that explains things clearly for you.
Here’s my first Five Line No-Rhyme Time verse that is not Topical at all.
This verse mentions Adelaide Crapsey, who defined a five line no-rhyme quintain format that followed the strict syllable construction of 2, 4, 6, 8, 2, as well as having something about ‘stresses’ in long words that stressed me because I didn’t really understand them.
quintains to be correct according to Crapsey should have syllable discipline I nearly did one like that once
Thank you for visiting Scribblans today. Sorry it probably wasn’t very good this time.

Yes it could. Well, try it if you don’t believe me then.
