Double Dactyl Demystified
Dactylic poetry:
Read, and I promise it
won't be unclear.
This is a form that is
challenging, that's why I
hold it so dear.
Meaningless syllables,
That's what you write on the
very first line.
If you get writer's block,
any nonsensical
rambling is fine.
This is the subject line.
Always the second in
stanza the first.
Rules, regulations, and
why all these verses sound
super rehearsed.
Meter and prosody
Tougher to master than
trying to learn.
Stanzas consisting of
ending with choriamb.
Now it's your turn!
Line-ending melody
Not so constrained that it
eats up your time
Both of the choriambs
happen to end with a
masculine rhyme.
Hexasyllabic rule:
This is the last bit of
knowledge, my friend.
You should start brainstorming
words for the second verse.
This is the end.

The Metal Case
It was 6 p.m. on a rainy Saturday night.
The machine in front of them let out a loud beep.
Finally the voice spoke again. "I hope that everything will work out better next time."
"What does he mean by that, Jake?" asked Sharon. She got no response.
"If anyone's listening to this, it works. I've found my second chance. I have to do this," said the voice, the static from the recorder getting stronger.
Sitting across from each other, Jake and Sharon listened to the recorded voice of their friend Ian. It spoke of complex science they couldn't understand, and was interspersed with bouts of static. This was the last clue they had of the whereabouts of their friend.
Jake reached for the tape recorder and pressed the play/pause button. Sharon sat with her arms around her knees, staring back at Jake.
Holding the case in his hands, Jake examined the interior. It was empty save for a tape recorder and a peculiar looking device attached to the inside. It was covered in wires and electrical compone

EnzanEXE Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist, I guess my long-term memory is more limited than I thought? That would explain why I found your username familiar, tho.

dude where the hell have you been? hows stuff at MIT?
LightAesthetic Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Where have I been? I've been at Classy this whole time; where've you been?

MIT's pretty great. I'm here for the summer working on a middle school robotics competition. We're teaching the kids how to program these satellites so that they can race on the ISS. (The satellites are on the ISS right now, and there's gravity on earth, so we can only do virtual simulations here)

Well I was trying to finish the rest of high school years which was taking up essentially most of my time. Thank god it's summer and I'm looking forward to the college years.

You should go to the new Lumiere site, since a lot of people either though you died or just lost contact with you. Website: [link]

Dude, that MIT stuff sounds pretty legit and it's a good cause to help out kids by teaching them about technology. But yea, def drop by to Lumiere, since that place really need to be active again from all of brian's hard work.
