Writing Poems

by pharp

I enter contests, my poems do rhyme

That's what I do most of the time

I penned a haiku about wind chimes -

I was disqualified ... worked overtime

Still, I, it's a hard climb

Soon I'll be broke without a dime

I've tried to pen a short pantomime

Words became silent and lost in time

Yet, I remain calm and sublime

For penning a poem is not a crime


Monorhyme writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a monorhyme and have fun :)
A Monorhyme is a poem in which all the lines have the same end rhyme.

Example #1:
Late for Class

I realized it was half past four
When I, quite late, ran out the door.
My history class I so abhor,
But I missed two sessions the week before.
I failed a test on ancient lore
And forgot the date of the Second World War.
(Man, my brain was really sore.)
Up the marble stairs I tore,
And slid across a just-mopped floor:
I banged my knee and loudly swore,
To wake -again- at half past four!
These nightmares I can stand no more...
