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
sanity
And nothing left for
vanity
With little time for
calamity
No mind: Sean
Hannity

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 :)
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.

Could you write me a poem,
Or write me a letter?
Just something that will make me feel better.

a short rubbishy rhyming poem.

Pink lip-stick on the butt of a cigarette,
You breathe me in and I can't forget.
You taste like ecstasy but feel like regret,
And love should never feel like a constant threat.

Inspired by a cigarette I saw on the side of the road.

Where do we go?
What do we do?
Sometimes were pink
Others times are blue
Sorry if this poem gives you a bore
But of course my intentions were to make you snore
