Iambic SCABameter – By @FMickshik
A SCAB. A copywriter. Talent. Flaunt it.
A chance to prove to Marc why he accepted;
Flo’s rhyming SCAB has hammered down the gauntlet
I see this glorious quest and must accept it.
But how to top such neatly crafted verse?
With scansion that would make a poet proud
I’d dread to churn out something that is worse
Especially if it’s ever read aloud.
I guess iambic pentameter will
Suffice for me to use to tell this tale
There’s still about 400 words to fill
I wonder just how fast it will get stale?
On Monday Rob set us A DOUBLE BRIEF
A silent film and animating quotes
The fresh Adobe challenge gave me grief
My software skills will rarely win me votes.
On Tuesday Mr Cain was introduced
He walked us through some hacks for SCA
He forgot to share his slides ‘til half way through
His words still echoed in my ears all day.
Marc shared a sticky thinking masterclass
He had us rate some ads on scales of ten
We all regretted scoring them so harsh
When remembering we’d be compared to them.
On Wednesday we had Richard set the scene
Remorseless product focus is his schtick
His Gordon’s ads were nothing except green
But quirky copy made the ideas stick.
Mike Nicholson was Thursday’s brand-new friend
His CV reads like my ideal career
Handwritten letters, what a thing to send
To help him find new work when none seemed near.
On Friday we submitted what we’d done
The moving text, the films we’d put together
Rob said our comedy was clear and fun
We lost to tragedy, who cares, whatever.
The weekend rolled around, what a relief
And yet a nagging thought was in my brain
I just want Monday NOW and a new brief
I cannot wait to do it all again.
No rhyming dictionaries were used in the making of this SCAB
