Transport. (Poetry Form 90: Lilliputian Poem)

This is, technically, a fictional poetry form, described by T. H. White in the book Mistress Masham’s repose, which is about a little girl’s relationship with a colony of lilliputians living in an
island on a lake in Britain, Whether this poetry form appears in the original
Gulliver’s Travels, I don’t know.
Like the footle, Lilliputian poetry is in trochaic monometer. The difference is that the first syllables need to rhyme with each other. Lilliputian poetry is also usually a quatrain in rhyming couplets.

I like
My bike.
So far,
No car.
