MMA Storytime’s Rispetto Poetry Prompt Challenge #1
Welcome to MMA Storytime’s Rispetto Poetry Prompt Challenge!
A Rispetto, an Italian form of poetry, is composed of eight lines. Not only do the lines follow a specific rhyming pattern—ababccdd—but each must consist of exactly eleven syllables.
prompt word is fight
Every volatile personality
is approached in a calm manner of speaking
diffused bombs that lead to serendipity
the louder they yell they can be quite jarring
word after word viciously beating you down
with firm posture in place you just stand your ground
see, bullies always bark louder than they bite
we of cool and calm will always win this fight
