Oulipost #6: Blank Verse Amidst the Prose

Lines of iambic pentameter dredged from today's Gulf Times forthwith. You don't need to be a feet geek to read the poem, however.

Consistent with the aircraft flotsam teams,
Selection factors such as size support
A fashion culture. Heritage displayed
Ferrari branded little ones. In line
With international authorities,
A last-lap error cost the nearby shop
Security, but diplomatic times
Increase a lifetime dream. Believe the clues
In sonic pings, in stretch of sea, in cash.
Rewards designed to recognize event
Participants enhance the real probe.
