Ankle Bracelet

Don’t cross the line
he said to me
And you’ll be fine
and fancy free
But if you do
we’ll see that you
see stars through bars

    1. Thank you, BF! Yeah, there are just some words you can’t win with. I wrote a poem once and one of the readers had a hard time with a syllable count. There was one word they pronounced with different syllables than I did, and neither of us could think to pronounce it the other way. There’s also a syllable counting site Suzi Bocks told me about, but I won’t use it after it insisted “isn’t” is one syllable. I’ve decided to in general use my pronunciation as my count basis.
