Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”

Guys, that’s not only Iambic, that’s a fucking sonnet. *claps*
Grammatically correct for the period and a couple of references to Shakespeare’s actual works.
I’m sincerely impressed.

Today’s top book news item:
Eric Hill, author and illustrator of a series of children’s books about a playful yellow puppy named Spot, died at age 86 “after a short illness,” according to his publisher. Hill’s “Spot the Dog” series has sold more than 60 million copies worldwide.
"Spot has entertained and educated generations of preschoolers, a fact that gave Eric much joy," Don Weisberg, the president of the Penguin Young Readers Group, said in a statement. "He was very fond of Spot, and we are forever grateful for his contribution to children’s books." In an interview on his website, Hill said that "children all have a basic creativity which needs to be encouraged and nurtured," adding, "I wanted to acknowledge from the start that children have far more intelligence and style than many adults credit them with."
