A Rondelet

for Real Toads
A Rondelet, of sorts

They're asking me to rhyme.
I used to do it all the time,
but they're asking me to rhyme
now, when my faculties are taxed,
they're asking me to rhyme.

(Okay. I did it. Sigh.)

  1. And you rhymed. And your poem was humorous. I don't mind rhyme, but I can't write humor.

  2. Methinks you're a line short - but who's counting? LOL
    (Pperhaps a penultimate line could be added 'and making me feel vexed', which would complete your rondolet nicely?)

  3. Actually, two lines short, but who's counting? This is what I call a protest poem, and very enjoyable it is too!

  5. This is why my writing doesn't follow any rules because to me, there are no rules to what we write, unless of course you wish to go by their constrictions. I like Haiku and Tanka, they're lovely but all this sestena and such, they can keep it. I like my words to flow and go like a river, free.
    So Sheryy, your little rhyme suits me, just fine, dammit, Somehow I managed to make that rhyme too...LOLOL

  7. Hee hee. I cant believe I didnt count the lines:) SO typical. Love the idea of the protest poem. And considering I was FEELING vexed, that would have been a perfect word to use had I thought of it. Perhaps I was just hexed:)
