New forms of Poetry

Haiku originally had 5,7,5 syllables.
 
I decided to invent a new poetry form called the Manfred, after Manfred Man's famous hit 54321. 
 
 
Here are three examples. 
 
A hungry Manfred
 
Seeking a good feed
 
Steak pie and chips
 
Carrot cake
 
Ice cream
 
Fudge
 
A sexy Manfred
 
Asking for a shag
 
Adultery?
 
Fornicate?
 
Tupping?
 
Bonk?
 
An agile Manfred or Lift off
 
Challenge gravity
 
Moderate hop
 
Running jump
 
Pole vault
 
Leap
 
A second new type of poetry, 'The Boaster'
 
Boaster 1
 
Too sexy for my car
 
More handsome than Beckham
 
I buy champagne at the bar.
 
Just bought a mansion in Peckham
 
Boaster 2
 
I'm so rich
 
I drive a Rolls-Royce
 
I sing like Pavarotti
 
I've an exquisite voice.
 
Boaster 3
 
I'm a great writer
 
Books, poems and blogs
 
An arrogant blighter
 
A prince among frogs.
