Like most forms coined these days
The “monchielle” relies
On what has passed before:
With but a passing nod
To master’s skill of yore.

Like most forms coined these days
Their rules are rubber reins: 
Iambs described soft-hard
And in naiveté
Their advocates claimed bards.

Like most forms coined these days,
The attention wavers:
Minter’s has things to do.
There’s games to watch, you see:
Commitments to eschew.

Like most forms coined these days,
The “monchielle” does try
To emulate supreme
And lasting craftsmanship.
It is a worthy dream.

Thanks again, Dorian. I drew a blank at what I should write about, so did a bit of fun-poking instead at Heinriksen's 'To Write a Monchielle'.
