Fourth assignment from Writing 201: Poetry
Day 4: Imperfect, Limerick, Enjambment
Oh! Dear friend of mine!
Why aren’t you fell fine?
Is your self teasing you for what you’ve done? Or
Fellows burning your egos for
Insisting their beliefs and you haven’t choice but to intertwine.
Oh! Dear wise fellows why you love debates?
Insisting ideas no matter what waits!
War! Wasting the breath of innocence
Until values of lives becomes no sense!
Is perfection is the cause of this desperate straits?
Oh! Dear “perfection” of thoughts what has in you?
Why my fellows choose to swallow the humanity value
Now, I will tell you that “imperfection” is an art
This secretes by the egos inside your heart
The imperfect perfection, tell us on how can we behold your virtue?
My fellow sons and daughters of God, I wish you got the message of this poem.

Terms introduced by Writing 102: Poetry.
Check Poetry Foundation for more poetic terms.
- Enjambment – It may sound like a mouthful. But what it describes is a really simple phenomenon: when a grammatical sentence stretches from one line of verse to the next.
- Limericks – are traditionally composed of five lines of verse. The traditional rhyming scheme of a limerick is a a b b a — the first two lines rhyme, then the next two, and the final verse rhymes with the first couplet.
- Prose poetry– any piece of verse written using the normal typography of prose, while style maintaining elements of poetry, like rhythm, imagery, etc.
- Internal Rhyme – the poetic device on offer for your exploration today — should appeal to all poets. It adds a level of sonic complexity and playfulness without calling too much attention to itself the way end rhymes (i.e. rhymes appearing at the end of verses) do.
- Acrostic – A poem in which the first letter of each line spells out a word, name, or phrase when read vertically. See Lewis Carroll’s “A Boat beneath a Sunny Sky.”
- Simile – A comparison (see Metaphor) made with “as,” “like,” or “than.” In “A Red, Red Rose,”
- Haiku– A traditional Japanese form, now popular around the world. Normally (but not necessarily) composed of three lines of verse containing five, seven, and five syllables, respectively.
- Alliteration– The repetition of initial stressed, consonant sounds in a series of words within a phrase or verse line. Alliteration need not reuse all initial consonants; “pizza” and “place” alliterate. Example: “We saw the sea sound sing, we heard the salt sheet tell,” from Dylan Thomas’s “Lie Still, Sleep Becalmed.” Browse poems with alliteration.
