    Oh, I love this poem! I love its' humor and it's rhyme! It's simple, yet elegant in my opinion. I laughed and laughed when I read your poem. Thank you for a wonderful read. (Report)Reply

    Well, well done. Here there are no negatives. Some will complain
    about the simple construction of the rhyme but that's because the
    readers of today have no sense of humor for this old, original, form
    of poetry. They might see it as trite. You can ignore them though,
    and take pride in doing what they cannot.
