A Rhymester’s Lament

For seventeen years I’ve been doggedly rhyming.
I’ve worked on perfecting my rhythm and timing.
I’ve written in anapests, iambs and trochees
For various readers from scholars to Okies!
I’ve memorized Seuss for his wit and his beat.
I’ve sat at Shel Silverstein’s metrical feet!
I’ve tried to be clever and sometimes profound.
And what gets an audience?  ”Pants On the Ground!”

    Well, if it makes you feel any better, I have even watched “Pants on the ground” on YouTube, but I love reading your rhymes!

    My blog about fantasy football leagues got a huge response. A real learning for me: write about what you DON’T know, and they will come. :)

    Thanks, Janelle. I’m not really complaining, just joking around.
