You gotta spell shit phonetically, it has a specific meter and rhyme scheme think I just reblogged a post that called it iambic dimeter …. I feel like I ought to know this as a collector of bredlik poems, but what exactly is the rhyme scheme that most of them follow?

This semester I taught a second-year Poetry subject that introduces students to various forms and styles of poetry. I especially love poetry memes because they're such a great example of just how much fun you can have with poetry and poetic convention, as well as how wonderfully flexible language is. People delighting in linguistic play on the internet is one of my favourite things, so the week we did the sonnet , I decided to help explain iambic metre by using a meme I'd been seeing a lot of at the time. The meme in question is called ' bredlik ' among other things and, like most memes these days, started on Reddit and found a home on Tumblr.
