I've written a poem,*
...perhaps a bit long.


It speaks of a future
when things go quite wrong.

*I wrote this poem
with a pattern of stressed and non-stressed syllables.
The sentences will all have a pattern
(known as "dactyl")
of one stressed syllable,
followed by two non-stressed syllables.
See if you can spot the pattern on each page,
as you go along.
On the next page, for example,
I've stressed the following syllables (underlined below):
Oh, I know technocrat optimists spewing out drool.
