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
d’Verse 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.
