Thank you, Ms Guzzi

Written by: Frances King

Thank you dear / Debbie for / pointing out / my mistakes!
Now I can / see where I’ve / been getting / out of step.

“Statuesque” / was one of / my early / efforts and 
Then I had / not learned the / rhythms of /poetry.

If I were / Writing it / now I’d be / tidier. 
I’d know my / dactyls and / iambs and / … other stuff … 

But since the / subject was / utterly / frivolous, 
Frankly Ms. / Guzzi, I / don’t think I / give a damn!

I thought my original entry in Debbie’s meter contest was in
dactylic tetrameters. 
Sadly it was not – but this one is!
