My First Triolet

Had a few moments while Frida was napping today to try my hand at the triolet form.


TRIOLET ON THE FUTILITY OF GARDENING

Why bother with the weeds? They just come back.
______No matter how many you pull,
you'll never suffer from a lack.
Why bother with the weeds? They just come back
infesting every sidewalk crack!
______They'll only play you for the fool.
Why bother with the weeds? They just come back,
______no matter how many you pull.


Oh, and if anyone has tips for formatting poems using blogger, please let me know. I had to use that underline instead of trying to figure out how to insert actual spaces.
