The bridge was built of solid arches

then one winter trolls moved in

one family under each arch

they would bail up any poor soul

with threats of nasty curses

if they didn’t pay an exacting toll

or share a few fun rhyming verses

 

dVerse by Frank – The word for the quadrille today is “troll” or any variation or arrangement of it somehow in your poem.  

The hard part of a quadrille is that it must have exactly 44 words (excluding title). Some people find 99-word stories difficult. A quadrille permits less than half that many words.
