    Like what, Sumyanna?

    You little bastard!
    You left out the mustard!

    What did I tell you?
    I don't want to smell you!

    Don't wave that fart at me!
    You really startled me!

    You are not alone Muttado1sb - If I get started in rhyme then I absolutely cannot write free verse and moving from free verse to rhyme is also a bit difficult (but not as bad). Even my yelling at the kids rhymed at some points :-)

    Ah, but you come up with such zingers, Muttado.

    Thanks, though I think it has become a curse. I hear a four syllable phrase and it just starts. :-)

    Oh, I meant my beginnings as when I was first learning to write. You grow and you learn more over time, often by making mistakes. I love what you came up with by the way!

    Thank you. There were at least two other poems with this name, and my worst poems are where I try to force the metaphor, so the idea just came together and spilled out. I'm not sure what you mean about your beginnings, but they gave me this (not based on anything but your words, the rest just followed):

    I remember
    my beginnings
    Late September
    between innings
    Under bleachers
    unseen teachers
    Made hay, my way

    Bad poetry
    is easier
    with simile
    and metaphor
    forcing their way
    into the fray
    Bad verse averse
