I was browsing through my reader feed here and happened upon The Weekly Terrible Poetry Challenge entry by pensitivity101.
It appears that the topic this week for the non-rhyming poetry contest is “second hand shopping”.
Go ahead and check that out, this may make more sense after.
Anyway, while I was reading that I decided I liked rhyming enough that this popped into my head…
I don’t know if I’ll like it,
I don’t know that I can…
Write without some rhyming,
About shopping second hand…
Oh now I’ve gone and done it,
I broke the challenge art,
Should have listened when I thought,
I shouldn’t even start…
I wonder now what happens,
Is there any way to mend…
Or have I just set into play,
The beginnings of my end?!
OK, a bit off topic. I actually think the original challenge by Chelsea Owens is interesting and I may give it a serious attempt as it would expand my horizons you might say.
Thank you for reading!
