My neighbour uses power tools at midnight
he has to cut up the bodies so they fit right
the same way that these
two poets both squeeze
and expand their meter and scansion without ever getting the lines even a bit tight.

My neighbour uses power tools at midnight
he has to cut up the bodies so they fit right
in boxes that he staggers to the street
with anti-limerick slow iambic feet
suffering a temporary wit blight.
