Okay, so here I am, writing an analysis of a poem, which I am very close to completing.

I have come across a problem, though. I had to determine the structure of "Conscripts" by Siegfried Sassoon. Originally, I thought it was in Iambic Pentameter due to it's 10 syllables in each line, however, upon handing in a draft I have been informed otherwise. Apparently it's something else.

Pit, can you help? It has 5 stanzas, each consisting of 6 lines with rhyming couplets at the end of each verse.

What is the structure of this damn poem?! Click here for poem.

Thanks.

Sorry, it cannot be. Haiku consist of three sentences, each containing five, seven, and five syllables.

"Does anyone else find this weird? I mean, we're looking down on Wayne's basement.. only that's not Wayne's basement... isn't that weird?" "Garth, that was a haiku!!" "Alright, excellent."

it's not iambic because not every other syllable is stressed...i cant exactly remember what it would be though

That's like me asking you why you don't know what my poem is.

I didnt even look at the poem, but I still bothered to help you with your homework.
