12 Days Penning

For twelve days last Christmas, 
my true love penned for me:
Twelve odes quatrain-ing
Eleven haiku chain-ing
Ten lines dizain-ing

Nine tongues a'twisting
Eight rhymes a'riddling 
Seven trifalls falling
Six tyburns burning 
Five etherees

Four appalling puns
Three French songs
Two terza rima
And a pantoum
as a parody.

I never in my life
will read another poem.
And as for my "true love"
I never got to know him.

    Reason, this is one of my favorites on the entire list because you matched your meter of your lines to the original song, and that is important for me in reading a parody of a song. Congrats for making the top ten list. Andrea
