I am actually quite surprised and proud of this one. Now, I know it's far from perfect but.........it's better than I even imagined.
WARM-UP #2: BLANK VERSE AMIDST THE PROSE
And now for something slightly more difficult...compose a poem using unintentional lines of iambic pentameter found in your newspaper (or practice source). Blank verse is poetry written in regular metrical but unrhymed lines, almost always iambic pentameters. More background:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blank_verse
I studied blank verse for a bit and then gave it go.
Bemused components communicate rants
In three retired eloquent essays
Propelling processes using software
Knowledge to collect research on topics
Such as conceived fear in newfangled words
Cheeky subjects progress widely across
A myriad of people in parades
Pamphlets circulate the precious crusade
Wrapped in humanities killing real thought
