Conflicted over Nancy's -BLANK- Verse

Boy, such a gas
Boy, so much fun
Boy, what a job
Boy, wanna run 

Oh, the pleasure
Oh, the pain
Oh, the freedom
Oh, the strain

Gee, a poem?
Gee, with blanks?
Gee, let's try it
Gee, no thanks!

Got an idee 
Got a glimmer
Got to figure
Got to simmer

Look, it's coming
Look, it's here
Look, I'm rhyming
Look, my dear !

Eek, I'm stymied
Eek, can't think
Eek, come on brain
Eek, on brink

Dang, I'm close now
Dang, I've got it
Dang, the word's come
Dang, in pocket!

Scrabble's a fine game
if with a Q not hobbled
But to tell you the truth,
I'd rather be BOGGLED!

    ooops, I did mix you up. Do you realize how close your name is to Susan Burch's?? She is a good friend of mine here and I don't recall commenting to other Susan's other than her lately. But maybe I have commented to you before too??

    this is funny,susan. But I"ll have to see what blank verse of Nancy's you are referring to. Does she ask for blank verse to be used in the scrabble contest? Gotta check that out . by the way, here is the meaning of blank verse: It's iambic pentameter without rhyme on the end. that's all it means, but rarely do I see any poets using the name of that form correctly to identify their works! How are you today? I left ya emails. Hope you are getting them. Had a bad night but all is better for now!
