WARM-UP #2: BLANK VERSE AMIDST THE PROSE

And now for something slightly more difficult…compose a poem using unintentional lines of iambic pentameter found in your newspaper (or practice source).

My source:  http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2014-03-14/news/ct-des-plaines-oasis-closing-met-20140315_1_des-plaines-oasis-tri-state-tollway-dagan

The results:

The sea of superhero-themed plush toys
So easily attainable with just
Correct maneuvering of a claw crane
the perfect place for him to experience
with greasy fair and weary truckers
“It might seem kind of cheesy but to me…”
And lying on a picnic table bench
The oasis of her memory is not the same
