Alexandrine vs. the Iambic Pentameter

In one corner, an Alexandrine;

in the other an Iambic Pentameter:

the bell rings, they face each other –

who is going to win?

Well, TBH, they are old hat,

IMHO, and that means that

I just don’t care.


Let’s be up to date

and produce modern-times poetry

at a rate of knots.

What’s the problem with that?

And, it’s not as if anybody reads

“proper” poetry anymore, is it?
