Working head of state one day, gone the next. Sic transit gloria. An adoring contingent of Great Britain has lately felt its feelings in splendid public fashion for a queen whose reign exceeded average life expectancy in most of the world.
Shed of mourning now, the kingdom is abuzz over something known as the quasi-quatrain and a mysterious “physical event” connected to it.
We who closely follow prosodic events in the UK are keen to know more about a thing conjecture dictates plausibly to be some cuadri-partite stanzaic verse scheme, formally crippled by design, perhaps, in the manner of the Spanish pie quebrado, or “broken foot,” conceivably an epic form for singing exploits of the elderly new monarch, easily supposed to have been culled from some ancient manuscript lodged in a rustic chapel nestled in the Pennines, and which ostensibly is garnering excited comment on this auspicious dawning of the second Carolean epoch.
