She could charm the pants off anyone who would listen
Even went to charm school without paying tuition
In all likelihood she’ll probably find a Charmer
He’ll sweep her off her feet and become her partner
I am the most charming and choice number three
Three times is a charm so it might as well be me
Lucky charm around my neck, charms on a bracelet jingling
Plenty of Southern Charm, ladies never sweat, they’re glistening
Things come in threes and you can live a charmed life
Prince Charming came along, charmed, I am sure, to be his wife

Bjorn is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight and has prompted us with
Anapestic Tetrameter. It means that we have four stressed syllables
on each line (so each line has twelve syllables). It is a form
mastered by Dr. Seuss.
For this exercise I reworked an old poem I had filed under humor
and hope it works. I'm sure you'll let me know!!
Bjorn also gave us a little free rein with the syllables!
