Not Vernacular Please...(Dialect) For Ivor...Triolet Sonnet

Ah triolet to pass de time
Ah only hope ah make it sing
Wid riddum and wid words dat rhyme
Ah triolet to pass de time
Almost as good as ah 'small lime',
Not about any special ting.
Ah triolet to pass de time
Ah only hope Ah make it sing
Doh dere is no message sublime.
Ah triolet to pass de time
In dialect might be ah crime
Ah jus letting meh thoughts take wing.
Ah triolet to pass de time
Ah only hope ah make it sing.

Note
Lime - an informal get-together
