The Poet’s Corner has some ongoing poetry challenges and I love that stuff. Though my favorite poetry form is the limerick, I enjoy a good rhyming challenge and this form – monorhyme – is right up my alley. What I Know About Women is a form of a monorhyme but with every other line being a monorhyme.
After a wonderful weekend of gourmet dining, this ditty popped into my head.
The Thanksgiving buffet was great,
But I am afraid I took the bait
And went back for plate after plate.
Now after everything I ate,
It’s time for a scale to state
What it’s going to take to abate
My waistline’s increased growth rate.
This isn’t open to debate –
This old man needs to lose weight!
But it sure was fun putting it on!
