I start to write and have to stutter,
What am I doing? to myself, I mutter.
A poem from scratch
And not worrying too much about the punctuation… the scanning;
Although I shall attempt to spell things right
Minor alterations as well I might
and any idea of a structure is lost
You’ll have to take it as it comes – I’ll count the cost.
For, if you make it to the end – or…
even this far; I’ll consider you brave, a hero, a star;
And maybe you’ll be inspired to pen something similar
Using your stream of consciousness
I halt. What rhymes with similar? Scimitar? Himler? No.
That was not a wise word to use – it caused a wheel to fall off
of this poetic vehicle – I clear throat, I cough, vernacular? Spectacular?
Similar has put a spoke in my wheels, a wall in my path,
And my silence reveals that I have no idea what to use as a rhyme…
I cannot Google a Rhyming Dictionary – no, not this time.
Similar is as similar does – but has it a rhyme, I don’t know
What rhymes with similar – I am waiting to show you, but…
Whilst I am typing, my mind cannot think, I’m cracking no nut
Of this crazy conundrum. A to Z I’ll scan through the letters
To see if that rhyme arises at all, or am I ensconced in poetry’s fetters?
Similarly, I have been here before with different words, that caused me uproar;
I cannot remember which words they were, but there are a few of them out there
Poets with me concur. Similar a b c dissimilar (no!) e familiar! will that do It’s a pretty good rhyme
I’ll not look for two. So similar is familiar and the rhyme it is true. I just need a lay down so it’s goodbye from me
and hello to you!
The end G:)
