    Haha this tickled me here is my take I wish it dubbious read.

    i write to avoid
    and those who do
    annoy
    let them shine the troy
    he'll come off horse's
    clops
    and begins to sprout
    toss
    will see if he will
    poss
    the land of
    literature lords


    and then this :

    he did not reach the dine
    he'd realised the fine
    he'd bought a watch
    and can
    never tell the time.

    but when it does it sigh

    good

    Freedom is a beautiful thing. I write both in rhyme and non-rhyme and make no apologies. I embrace my freedom to do whatever I feel like doing whenever I want. I read both, appreciate both, enjoy both. Sure, there are times when abuse of rhyming leads to groaning but there is equally abuse in non-rhyming that leads to groaning.

    I'm new at writing poetry and recently tried my hand at writing a ballad in iambic pentameter with rhyming. I now have a new appreciation for how difficult it is to do this without it sounding sing-songy, trite, forced, archaic, childish, sappy....there's an art to it and it's not easy, but history has shown it can be mastered. I'm a novice. I hope I never become so advanced as to set parameters for other's creativity. That's when I'll stop learning.

    ^ YesNo...bravo!
