Poets' corner.

Foot Couplets I do not make any apology For this study in philology It's for your own inspection Or to alter the inflection These are the plain facts Phraseology but no syntax I never meddle round the rim Or edge borders of synonym A palindrome there and back To level out all the slack A diversion not a detour A remedy but not a cure The verb to cure is preserved And quite simply not inferred If there's any irony inside There's no recourse to deride This will never satiate a greed But may well amuse to read.
