Ottava Doggerel

Ottava rima you’re kicking my ass
Usually iambs are not that all that hard
And this rhyme scheme don’t take a lot of brass —
But dang it, I’m just not feeling the bard,
Much less Byronic (or iconic) to boot.
It’s a Monday night for criminy’s sake
And you want me to think about one foot
Or another, or rhyme that’s not too fake?

This is not good.  This is bad, very bad indeed.
That’s what happens when you let Byron take the lead.
