Ha ha. This one certainly made me laugh – and I have to concur – rhyme – mmmmmm.
Thanks for sharing.

Haha…I do wonder though…did you find your brain ticking away thinking of rhyming words? Our minds have such a wonderful way of working, even if it’s not what we want them to focus on!

Loved your poem, Mia. I was not having any luck with this prompt until I realized I could write a poem about how hard it is to write a rhyming poem. Then it was easy. thanks for such a cute take on the prompt.

Your words remind me of Lear and the cleverness of not following the well-worn path.

Haha Mia – I feel the same, having obeyed all the rules of the sonnets and villanelles so I side stepped it completely. Love this!

Hi Mia
Well, it is certainly a tough task, but how wasteful it is, could be debated.
It is a surprise that the one who sets the prompts thinks it is waste of time to do with her proposed prompt. Or… maybe it is just for the sake of rhyme.
Thanks for the poem anyway.
