There Is A Reason To Be Rhymed


There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!

'May I hear that again,
From beginning to end.'

There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!

There's only one,
That can open wider...
A hooked and opened nose.

There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!

Where are the people who enjoyed doing,
Social things?

There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!
We are those people?
We are the people
WE THE PEOPLE.

We are those people?
We are the people
WE THE PEOPLE.

There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!

'May I hear that again,
From beginning to end.'

There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!

We are those people?
We are the people
WE THE PEOPLE.


There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!

We are those people?
We are the people
WE THE PEOPLE.

'May I hear that again,
From beginning to end.'

We are those people?
We are the people
WE THE PEOPLE.

There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!

All day all night here I stand.

There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!

All day all night here I stand.
There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!
And all day and all night,
And all day and all night the canvas expands.
There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!
There is a reason to be rhymed behind,
Everything!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
