Trochaic Dimeter

Shakespeare used the Trochaic Dimeter occasionally and so does Merkel. It is like Iambic Dimeter except the emphasis is on the first and third syllables.

Bubble, Bubble
Toil and Trouble
Whisk it Lightly
Make it Sprightly

Churn it Louder
Choc'late Powder
You can taste it
Just don’t waste it

Holy Holy
Pour it slowly
Let it build up
'Til it's filled up

Place a yellow
Sweet Marshmallow
On the saucer
Now don't force her

Care to take it
Not to shake it
Serve it steaming
Children beaming
