Yes but since it's iambic it's in pairs, so it ends up being ten meter.

Yeah, you'll get them back and you can keep the horse kingdom. I just need them for my poor mate Yorick who is currently earless.

I've never understood iambic pentameter in all my life. High school English was tough for me.

You wouldn't want a cold shower with a hot chick. Shrinkage is a mood killer.

Just get me the hot chick and I turn off the tab. Is that the problem?
