Commitments (An Ode a Day-Day 2)

Commitments

Commitments, openly stated, you then mean to keep

Without some forethought however, doubt starts to creep

 

Like this ode thing, I see now, is of certain code

Containing a strophe, an antistrophe and epode

 

Huh? Am thinking now I got in too deep

If someone would like to weigh in and tell me if the above is anything close to an ode, I’d appreciate it.
