Section 11: Levitation
So, you want to write light verse...
Study the characters around you.
Use funny words.
Hide a surprise at the end.
Take a different perspective.
Consider how your rhyme scheme and form affects levity.
Too serious is funny.
Base a poem or song on a joke or cliché.
Repetition can lighten a poem or song.
