Spaetzle Triolet

Why should I care to write a triolet?
It's too deformed, a poem like a pretzel.
If you've not paused to pick a violet
why should I? Care, to write a triolet,
is called for in degree most high. Oh, let
the critics carp and gobble spaetzle:
why should I care? To write a triolet
is to deform a poem like a pretzel.

This made me giggle - perhaps in spite of myself.

of course, it got my attention because I love spaetzle so!
