Headline: Poet Od's On Rhyme - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

A man and a woman are playing dominos.
The tiles look pretty, all in rows.

The woman wears second-hand clothes,
but the man has pigeon toes.

“Why don’t you write a novel like Joe’s? ”
“You know I don’t write prose.”

“Hey, before the stores close
should we buy beer? My thirst grows.”

“No, you and everyone knows
Beer makes me sick. I can’t tolerate those.”

“Ah, so it goes…;
I was reading this poem of Poe’s

last night about crows,
or was it a raven he chose? ”

“I never read the pros,
Though I once read a book of Defoe’s.

And some lyrics of Don Ho’s.
“Your erudition shows.”

“Let’s go catch some shows;
I’m weary of Dominos.”
