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.
