smiley - laugh That sums it up rather nicely.

I never know how to comment on the form when it's like this - it isn't poetry, but I think this verse form is a delivery system for commentary of this kind that fits the subject matter.

Sort of a rhyming version of Op-Ed?

It skilfully reflects the current situation in many countries, not just the UK. Well done. smiley - smiley

This certainly does sound like corporate speak! smiley - smiley It will strike a familiar chord with many people.

As for whether it's poetry, I'm not sure smiley - erm... I would call it verse.

The rhythm seems to be broadly anapestic (two soft stresses followed by a heavy stress)although it's not regular. I think it's the first line that jars. If you substituted "Thanks for attending this meeting" that might cure it.

Where have Sinnerman's entries gone?
It's pending Moderation apparently - nothing to see here. Back to Entry?
