    Give Up the Rhymes! It's easy!

    I never wrote a single poem
    Without at least one rhyme
    I think perhaps I'll stay at home
    And try it just this time

    I'll fill the poem with oranges
    And things the color purple
    Words that rhyme discourages
    That confound the rhyming scruple

    I'm sure that I can do this
    I'm excited just to try
    When done I will improve it
    To impress and mystify!

    Okay, here goes

    Orange and purple, the blouse you wore
    The ugliest thing, it was
    Unmatched with the green and yellow pants
    From your long past hippie days (is that a rhyme?)

    Your hair now bleached and split
    In a shaggy canine style
    Not the lovely curls you had
    When you were just a girl (oh, that was close, too!)

    Soon we celebrate twenty years
    Of constant wedded bliss
    And though we've shed so many…wet things from our eyes
    It's so much fun to remini… remind ourselves of thi… that

    Shoot, I can't do it
    I quit
    Shit...

      This could be a new style of anti-rhyming poem. You have already mastered it graydon!

      Good one MHenry. Hope the sandbox is a grand size on this one - I have a feeling lots of us will want to play.

      Your poem has wit, your poem has class
      The ending bites one in the ... rear
      I'd love to try my had in turn
      But worry I might crash and ... blaze
      Up like a wildfire uncontrolled
      I hope this hasn't seemed too ... bloody annoying!

      Definitely wouldn't write
      Without rhythm and rhyme
      Before I took flight
      I learned nursery rhymes

      MHenry
      Always friendly
      Words are plenty
      My hand, I give thee......


      Very enjoyable MHenry

      MHenry, you made me smile, with your new Anti-rhyming poetic style. And for 20 years should we say congrats, or was that just some made up stats to fit the theme?

      I love this, MHenry! OutSTANDING! The whole premise of it, the humour, the flow, and then the ending is so cool. Masterpiece ☺

        Thank you, grant, I had fun with this, and I think it turned out better than I thought it would. It could be fun to write anti-rhyming poems. It's a new thing!

          The entire metaphor was greatly scribbed

          20 years of wedded bliss...?

          20 years SERIOUSLY? Mate congratulations on that...

          8 years was my best in innings. But it ended well...
