  My Poems  

Thanks, I'll Pass

A Septet/Syllabic by Beverly Stock.

Do I like

Horse flies, newts, and bats?

They're not good choices for pets!

You can’t train them to catch a ball,

You can’t really teach them at all.

They are gross in mass.

Thanks, I’ll pass.

In poetry, a septet is a poem consisting of seven lines, and of any form or meter. It falls in-between the two ingredients of a sonnet, the octave and the sestet, and although a popular form for a short while it has lost popularity.


Beverly Stock is an American poet living in St. Louis. Her work has been published on, at, on Persimmontree.Org, and on the Webzine Lighten Up Online.
