Fun Frolic

 

Today

Little leaguers

High spirited, geared

Paraded with joyous fanfare

Businesses other than eateries wore Rabbit ears

drums, clicking parents, strollers, cops mêlée

Cacophony ruled roost

Boosted spirits

Stayed

 

A nine-line poem

Lines 1-4 increase in syllables 2-4-6-8

Lines 6-9 decrease in syllables 8-6-4-2

Line 5, the middle line, is an aside, a stage-whispered message directly to the reader–not within the flow of the other lines–that might be ironic or poignant.
