A poem about feet

I've been studying metre recently, and as a sort of training exercise I've written this poem.

I was hunting a molossus at the BBC
But they told me that I'd only found iamb/spondee.
I'm averse to confrontation, but I held my ground:
"There's a pyrrhic foot adjacent, could it not be found?"
So the fellow I was asking had a long hard look,
But he had no sense of rhythm, so it was a futile exercise.
