A way to dodge the duty to rhyme –
A sort of sonorous imitation;;
And we all know it’s not the same
As working to work the words (in passing
I’d better mention that sometimes some
Times it works); but what’s missing
Is that damn nailing of the final line.
This I assert, having tried it out
In various different styles – and I know
How very hard it is to do it right –
That anyone who rhymes should take a bow.
Here’s to the makers and, being blunt,
I’d love to rhyme that word but can’t.
