Sometimes I joke that it is forty-two,
But for each one reflection must ensue:
Each person has a diff’rent task to do,
And also must take in th’eternal view,
Conductor from whom he will take his cue.
This is my first attempt at a Whyquain, which is a 5-line poem that answers a question and in which all of the lines rhyme (aaaaa). This is my first attempt, so I plan to try writing a better one. Many thanks to Abigail Gronway for hosting this!
Also, i just realized that I used iambic pentameter instead of tetrameter, but I will share it anyway.
