for rhyming poetry in the 21st Century ~
βέƦẙḽ Dṏṽ

There are only four proper places
for rhyming poetry in the 21st Century ~

humorous verse,
poetry slams
and Hallmark...

I'm still trying to figure out the fourth.

my rhyme schemes
are often best
to be replaced
because you
can't hear me croon
in the afternoon
as I type out my feelings
alone in my room.

I'm thinking of trying to get a few people together to share poetry through youtube videos.
Help all of each other critique
for any of us who wish to speak,
                                            be heard,
                                            help learn.

There was silence left in
And nothing left for
With little time for
No mind: Sean

I don't even know Sean Hannity; it all just rhymed.

Sometimes it makes me feel like Dr. Seuss
What’s that word…oh ya moose
It’s a good way to teach the little one
And it is a whole lot of …uh….fun

I think that it makes it easier to read
It adds rhythm and speed
I sing it like a song
Ya maybe that’s wrong

Who would have thought who knew?
I would rhyme poetry for YOU
I can’t think of topic so I’ll stop
Or else I’ll recite “Hop on Pop”

So I’ll leave with this treat
About flowers so sweet
Bright yellow and orange…
Huh, oh ya nothing rhymes with orange

I had fun writing this one :)

The way we live our lives is the same
Day in and day out we play their game
I never know what they're doing
Most of us, we just see the bling
The bridge is crowded by too much cloud
Everyone else is way too loud

I think this is a smaller part of something, but I wanted to put it up here anyway.
Writing rhyming verse,

Writing free verse is like playing tennis with the net down.
~ Robert Frost

Writing rhyming verse,
outside the domain of humor,
is like listening to a leaky faucet.
The second drip is pleasing,
the tenth annoying
and the fiftieth
puts you fast asleep.
