Diiamb Foot


















Diiamb is a metrical foot used in metered poetry. It consists of (four syllables) a short syllable, long syllable short syllable and a long syllable. Look at the diiamb as two iambs in qualitative meter measuring a single foot; thus representing an unstressed syllable, stressed syllable, unstressed syllable and a stressed syllable as shown in Table above.

In verses 1, 7, and 12 of the first stanza of the poem “Ode to Sweet Revenge - Ground Zero Never” shown below:

1 He is cleaning the House; they want it done with lightning speed
7 Forget the two wars with hidden goals that tanked their economy;
12 So here’s the beef feeding my head on a tropical island

When scanned shows where the Diiamb foot appears. Take a look.

Is Barbados the Hurricane's sweetheart?

Haiti Under Rubble from 7.0 Earthquake

Natural disasters whenever and wherever they occur impact on all of our lives. The Good Book says we are our brothers and sisters keepers lead by the Holy Spirit. Hence, we must do our part when disaster shows its ugly face. Any assistance, great or small, given from generous and loving hearts has equal weight. I'm passing on this information I received that Barbadians can go to First Caribbean Bank to donate to the Disaster Relief Fund for Haiti. The banking information is shown below:

First Caribbean Bank Account--2645374-- Cheques can be written to: HELP #2645374

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Haiti.
