Verse vs Verses

There is a need in poetry, 
to fill your verse
with charming simile;
but how to pervert
this course of line,
with use of measures
drunk on wine?

I invite you reader
to observe ~

An audience of disinterested cows;
A flight of phlegmatic gulls;
A quarry of stone-faced gentlemen;
A menace of quixotic professors.

Or perhaps you have seen ~

A silence of feasting ants;
A conclave of pious crows;
An incipient of unctuous clergies;
A wandering of listless souls.

And may we all bear witness to ~

A pirouette of frightened cowboys;
A brace of scandalous authors;
A brume of dwindling hopes;
A carafe of bitter tears.
