I say there, smart girl
Well that might be so
Ring around the Moon

- She would rather the poem be Gothic in nature, I touched Gothic with stormy weather and stereo typing ladies but otherwise my poem is not very Gothic. I need more practice at writing this type.
- "Tweets" are supposed to be short, a 140 character length limit. I did that, 112/136, 89/106, and 94/113 (characters only/characters and spaces) for each of the verses including my short worded prelude.
