Sonnet #1 - Poem by Vi Lanflagle

Sonnet #1
I’m not quite sure how to write a sonnet
So I’ll start with just a few simple lines.
If I correctly write this sonnet
All of it should rhyme.

It was not so quiet,
That you should hear a pin drop.
You could blame the riot.
I suppose I’ll just eat this old gumdrop.

And so I began to ponder,
My glorious days of old,
To which I wonder
If are even stale enough to have grown mold.

And this is what I thought,
The day that I was caught.
