Getting people to read a poem once can be a bit of a struggle. So ... I scribbled up a four-liner that contains instructions for a second read.


‘I’m in iambic pentameter and
If you will note the quotes ‘round “&”,
& call it by its proper name, (Please do!),
You’ll find that now my lines will scan, thank you.’

Regards to all.
