i need help with tetrameters!!! --Anon.
- What do you want to know? I think it's pretty straight-forward. --Anon 2
- There is indeed. I've added an example from the dactyl article from The Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds". Not poetry, I know, but I can't think of anything right off the top of my head. -- the GREAT Gavini 19:08, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
Here is an example of Iambic Tetrameter I wrote, in a game. Can you count all the Iambs for me?
Now 9 o clock is growing fast,
The best of allies, built to last,
In calls we would support our wings,
Attacks; defence, and everythings;
The wisest of the wisest know,
Without Oasis slow to grow,
And growing is what we do best,
Please Mentor us to beat the rest;
We seek from wings the coolest crew,
To help us clear just one or two,
In exchange when your troops die,
A tuckerbox to our ally.
This call is made quite meta wide,
Are you one who can provide,
Assistance for our group so keen,
And wipe our member's oasis clean?
The first line does not gel with the rest of the article and appears to have been added later. While the information it provides it clear, it is not written in "encyclopaedic" format, whatever that means (basically, it doesn't look like the rest of the article). I'm not game enough to venture a fix myself, though. Peace and love. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 03:28, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
