**Writeacher**, Sunday, November 6, 2011 at 11:02amIt does sound like a mix of iambic and trochaic pentameter. Most lines seem to have ten syllables or so, and most of the "feet" seem to be iambs, but not all.

I think the poet is trying to keep something of a meter and rhythm, but also make it fairly close to modern-day casual speech/thinking. Since there is a certain level of bitterness and anger in the poem, he may also be reflecting those emotions when the meter seems to shift.
