'when serpents bargain for the right to squirm' by e.e. cummings. I have a presentation to do tomorrow I know the rhyme scheme is said to be ababcdcdefefgg but think I could pass this one off as abcbdefeghihjk?

    Does the poem has to be from a poet? Or could you write one yourself?

    I'm writing a pastiche on this poem, and I've been told to keep things consistent. The rhyme scheme,however, is iffy.

    And you have to present them tomorrow? Have you done anything yet?

    I was checking on the poem and I think it was good. How are you to write a pastiche on it?

    I have everything set. I was just scared because everywhere online said the poem was a Shakespearean sonnet but I didn't see the rhyme school they were saying.

    Ah...I think it's fine. Unless you wish to get a new poem. Or, maybe you could write two and contemplate with your teacher tomorrow. Safer that way.

    Ok, I'll do that, thanks :) The presentation has to be 10 minutes long I just just have an original with explanation and a final with explanation.

    It is a sonnet. A sonnet consists of 14 lines with a rhyming scheme of abab, cdcd, efef, gg. This cummings poem fits that criteria even though he uses mostly slant rhyme (with the exception of wage-age in the first stanza).
