Should I Write A Rhyming Poem - Poem by Bonnie Shipman

Should I write a rhyming poem?
Or perhaps a prose-like one
With lots of decoracious phrases, dear?
It could be very fun to have a lovely one
Whose syllables all match,
Oh! That would be a catch
Unless you would prefer it to be shining
With adjectives, like cream upon a cake
Or scum atop a lake, to fatten up
My poem and make it smile
I'll use the words, "Quite silent, "
And, "How terra-bibbly violent! "
So I hope you have such
Fluffy fun and games
And with me as your hostess
We will all do toast-es
To the happy and glumpy, horribly lumpy, squishy and jumbled and mismatched and wonderful poem

This one was written before I was fourteen, when I was in a jolly good mood! My family raved about it at the time.
