I hate sonnet (and yet I love it) -- a Language & Writing assignment
The reason I hate writing a sonnet:
One thing for sure, it’s too complicated.
Each line in each stanza must aim to get
Good rhymes, to get the ending connected.
Like ‘link’ rhymes similar to ‘wink’ and ‘blink’,
And ‘apple’ similar to ‘example’.
A sonnet’s also worse than limericks,
For it has fourteen lines in principle.
Limericks rhyme two A, two B, then A;
But sonnets lead to higher confusion.
No matter you are using English way
Or Petrarchan, you’ll still find frustration.
Yet, though a sonnet makes me want to kill,
I love irony; thus I learn its skill.
NOTE: Let me tell you what is ironic. After writing this, I fell in love with poetry.
