A Poem With The Perfect Rhyme Poem by Sylvia Chidi

A Poem With The Perfect Rhyme

Rating: 4.2

If a poem could cost a dime
I will spend my ink and spend my time
Making the perfect rhyme

More than a million people may read it
Even if I have to sell it on credit
I will be the businesswoman with wit
Sit down! Think about it!

A penny for the perfect sentence
A penny for a poem glaring with essence
A penny for writing about the present and past tense
A penny for describing a situation that is intense
A penny if I write truthfully without pretence
As I turn away from crime
Making the perfect rhyme

If a poem could cost a pound
I will turn my life around
As I compose the perfect poetic sound
That rhymes against any background

My words will be sublime
Not just the perfect rhyme
They will be read both at teatime and during bedtime
My sentences will mature in their prime with time
As I turn away from crime
Making the perfect rhyme

A penny for your thoughts they said, Then ignored what it was that they read (well it could have rhymed) If I had just thought to take the time. So it is with words that fit, Mostly have to stretch the syntax a bit. To make the meaning clear To one who has penciled in good cheer. Poems warm the mind and heart. How's that for a good start? Then when you make the perfect crime, Wont be because of your funny rhyme. Will be because you have something to say To entertain, pique, or some other way, Engage the reader in your thoughts, That are a penny, pound, or at no cost.
