Forum Rhyme - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

All forum posts shall be in rhyme
all else will be considered crime.
Miss Emily may well object
if there should be a small defect
in choice of words, she would detect
the slightest flaw, like carnal talk
and tell the poet, take a walk
for thirty days and thirty nights
because the managers have rights
unheard of for the common bloke!
But listen to my clever joke:
write rhymes in Russian or Chinese
use keyboards with exotic keys
and snicker as they hire staff
and pay for nothing, have a laugh.
Dear poet can you spare a dime?
I'll pay you back in peasant rhyme.
