Emphatically Wrong (Triolet)

You’re most emphatically wrong

You haven’t got it right

Your arguments far from strong

You’re most emphatically wrong

Dismissing it won’t take long

You’re clearly not that bright

You’re most emphatically wrong

You haven’t got it right.

Vehement Triolet

It’s hard to be too vehement

When writing formal triolets

They can be sincere, of clear intent

But it’s hard to be too vehement.

You can be quite clear and say what’s meant

But structural rules must still be met

It’s hard to be too vehement

When writing formal triolets.

She loved him to bits – a triolet

She loved him to bits

He left her in pieces

She was out of her wits

She loved him to bits

But he was the pits

He had her in creases

She loved him to bits

He left her in pieces.

A triolet is a poem of eight lines with the rhyme scheme ABaAabAB The first, fourth and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines, thereby making the initial and final couplets identical as well.
