Today's Prompt is Vers Beaucoup

Vers Beaucoup is an enjoyable form that was created By Curt Mongold on the FanStory site.

The easiest way to explain Vers Beaucoup is that it is a 4,3,3,2 rhyme format with no more than three words PER RHYME. A lot of people get thrown off by that one It can have less, but no more than three. Here is an example...

Little Roxanne
Little Roxanne, had a plan, to get Stan, a career man,
be his wife, his whole life, have no strife.
Well she knew, he liked brew, so she threw
a garden party, little smarty.
Everyone, was having fun, under the sun, especially the one,
she wanted most, he came close, made a toast,
about her eyes, made her realize, to her suprise,
he wanted her, feelings stir.

Stan came around, love was found, bells resound, her belly round,
baby makes three, on the tree, of this family.
That's how Stan became the man of little Roxanne,
together they grew, love so true.



He persists, to kiss, the sweet miss, in the mist
she resists not, because he's hot, she thought
so it starts, two hearts, cupids darts...
heard this before? wait there's more...

He and she, meant to be, happily, start a family
Bill, Jill, and Phil
Anne, Dan,  and Jo-Anne
house was full, dont you know.

Have fun...
