Day 26 ~ Italians Rule

Screen Shot 2014-04-26 at 5.38.15 PMI’m Italian, can’t help it.  I’m not fully italian, a hodgepodge of much more, but Italians rule.  From the Petrarchan sonnet to ciabatta bread, Italians just do everything right (politics not included).  There are many Italian forms to choose from for this prompt, but I am a bit late getting to it today so to be fair I am gong to give one of the shortest, The Italian Sestet.  We are looking at 6 lines with a rhyme scheme of ABC  ABC.  Traditionally this was written in either iambic tetrameter or pentameter, but in no way feel obligated to kill yourself with that restraint.  Just get those 6 rhyming Lines.


The Better Part
