Yesterday evening I was trying to write a rhyming poem – I thought that perhaps couplets wouldn’t be too hard (I was wrong). I think that I must mention that my rhyming abilities are potentially atrocious and horrid at best, so a rhyming dictionary was definitely a necessity. In the end, after much toil and effort, I came up with this:
Excuse me, said the right sock to the left,
But there seems to have been
A rather serious vehicle theft!
My shoe is gone, right sock proclaimed with much chagrin
I cannot find it, though I have looked – in east, in north, in south and west.
Well, left sock answered with a grin
May I suggest the age-old clue?
Look – it’s there in front of you.
I think I am in need of some practise.
