It’s more challenging than playing Gin and waiting for your right card,
Finding a rhyme for poems is frustrating and just so very …. difficult.
Sometimes I come incredibly close, both in syllables and in the sound,
But the words seem awkward or gross, and rhymes are never….discovered.
Other bloggers have a gift, they just immediately know how to rhyme.
Quick, fast and swift — perfect couplets every single …. duration.
They don’t have to Google or force ’em — they never struggle or strain.
Cheater’s dictionaries, I don’t endorse ’em, so I just rack my …. mind.
Maybe I should write free-verse for adults, more sophisticated, I know,
Who needs matchy kiddy jingles? Just be loose and let the words … stream.
Here’s to non-rhyming grown-up topics like death, taxes and lovers’ scorn,
Maybe even controversial issues like politics, war, and stuff you find in porn.
Hey! Did you see that? Once I stopped trying, it suddenly occurred on its own,
I don’t mean to boast or brag, but it’s obvious dear reader, I’m finally in the zone.
Look out Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss — your competition is gonna be rough,
You could just make an excuse, cuz next to me you’re both just a cream … pastry.
Oh no, now it’s gone! But you can bet I’m not goin’ down without the good fight.
You might say I’m tenacious, stubborn, relentless. And you’d be exactly ….correct!
