Oulipost #6 – Blank Verse Amidst the Prose

Compose a poem using unintentional lines of iambic pentameter found in your newspaper.

Watching, To See

Commit certain crimes in this league and be
a certain color, and you get help, not scorn.

Some players are closely watching to see
whether Irsay will be treated differently.

His speech was slurred and he could barely stand.
How long has he been abusing prescription drugs?

But some players are wondering publicly
whether Irsay will be treated differently.
