Sonnets Should Be So Easy

But sonnets are hard.
That’s why I
Don’t write them.
Iambic pentameter,
A structure, a meter,
da-Duh, da-Duh
A dummie am I.
Or is it, a dummie am I?
Yes and yes!
The syllables count.
Rhyme the lines
Unstressed then stress.
I’m under duress!

There’s a little white
Dog breaking through
The snow. Go, dog, Go!
Ah– but that looks easy.
