This pre-NaPoMo assignment was to compose a poem using unintentional lines of iambic pentameter found in one’s 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
Please Stay Tuned for the Weather
If someone does pop news at 8 o’clock,
it’s not their first connection to the world.
We didn’t sit down and design a show
for filthy lucre and that lofty fame
to reinforce the letter of my friend,
the benefits of an associate,
or talk whenever possible about
the rudiment of traffic safety laws
again with the belief that constitutes
a better way might be to pass out food.
