I once had a bee in my bonnet

And that was to write a sonnet,

Because, it was worthy of note,

That there were no sonnets among the poems that I wrote.

So I thought of a subject about which to write,

Because I wanted to do it just right.

But, at that time, to be quite frank,

My mind seemed to be a complete blank.

But, just as I was about to give up the idea,

I counted the number of lines I had here,

And realized that, if I desired,

I could add the extra two lines that’s required.

So, this is what I have just done,

And a sonnet turned out to be this one.
