On Triolets (theory & practice)

  
THEORY
 
1.  The first repeats twice more again  
2.  the next once more for sure you’ll see  
3.  so have a go, pick up a pen  
4.  the first repeats once more again  
5.  just choose a scansion, cool and zen  
6.  and stick to it so flow is free -  
7.  the first repeats last time again  
8.  the next, no more for sure - you see.  
   
   
   
   
PRACTICE  
   
Keys On Mars  
   
Was searching for my bloody keys  
they might as well have been on Mars  
the quest destroyed my zen-like ease  
while searching for my bloody keys  
I even pleaded God “Oh please …”    
forgot I’d dropped them in a vase.  
Was searching for my bloody keys  
they might as well have been on Mars.
