I got an email today asking me for the "simple way to write a rhyming poem in iambic pentameter."


I guess my answer would be "just think in iambs, count to five, and rhyme!"

It must be the start of the new school year, where homework questions come to me via email or in various comments. Good times! I'm sure many of you get the same, particularly those of you who review books I'd imagine, but it treads that fine line between amusing and head-scratching to me. Brave new world, indeed!
