Don't Go Into The Forest
A Butterfly Cinquain
Went into the forest
Oblivious to the werewolf there
The werewolf saw Timothy Finn
It caught him by his neck
Its dinner served

I love this so much. You have such a distinct style that, even if I didn't know this was yours, I think I'd know it was yours. Well done 🖤
Great Job. It was short but told a story. 👏

Wow I had no idea people could make a structure in a poem like this. Very beautiful. Good job all around.
That was very cool. I love this light, sweet butterfly shape paired with the slightly gruesome content!
Excellent! The subtle form of the butterfly cinquain with the vicious content of the wolf creates true horror. I’m impressed.
